Protecting the frontline: How do we save pharmacies in our local communities?
Monday 26 September, 8am, Vinea, Unit B7, Britannia Pavilion, Albert Dock, Liverpool L3 4AD
Karin Smyth MP Bristol South
Jonathan MacShane Councillor, Hackney
Mark Burdon PSNC Cumbria and North East regional representative
This event will discuss the challenges facing community pharmacies around the country that are under threat from government cuts and changes that will have a negative impact on the services they are able to offer to patients. In December 2015 the Conservatives announced they were cutting pharmacy budgets by more than 6% despite pharmacies acting as a key pillar within the NHS easing financial strain and opening up the health service for our communities. The discussion will look at what can be done to save local pharmacies and what policies the Labour party should be putting forward to ensure that this vital link between the rest of the health service and our local communities is maintained. This event is in association with the PSNC.
