Queue for your GP if Pharmacy closes


Dear Councillor,

Last week, pharmacists and Labour MPs formed a queue outside Parliament to demonstrate the impact pharmacy closures would have on GPs. As winter nears, the need for pharmacy is getting greater for vulnerable people and the pressure on A&E and the NHS as a whole is rising. This article published on Monday further stressed the need for relieving this pressure.

We need to keep up the pressure on the government, help us spread the message that closing community pharmacies is a dangerous experiment and that limiting access to pharmaceutical care will drive more people through the doors of GPs and A&E at a time we need to be relieving pressure on those services.

Share this article, and this photo with your colleagues and on social media.

Best wishes,

Ian Strachan
Chair of the National Pharmacy Association
