Invitation for local contractor feedback for your upcoming LPC meeting

Please find the questions and issues already raised for your upcoming February LPC meeting. (these will always be kept anonymous on our website below).

Question: Tell us about any specific issues you would like raised for consideration at your next LPC meeting?

Answer 1: I want the pharmacy bodies to consider allowing pharmacies to open with competent staff and allowing a competent pharmacist to supervise via remote access for sales of medication and pick up of medications. Any issues, then staff can contact the RP eg. patient questions and supervising potential inappropriate sales. GP’s and nurses are working via different methods adapting to the current pandemic. We must look to the future and adopt new ways of working in the current staff shortages and over priced locum scenarios. This will bankrupt small independent pharmacies closing vital lifelines for local communities.

Question: Do you have any other comments to make?

Answer 1: Help us before we lose our homes and livelihoods, help us to keep small independent pharmacies alive.
