CEO Video Update: Protecting Pharmacy Funding
PSNC Chief Executive Janet Morrison has recorded a video update for community pharmacy contractors following PSNC’s November Committee meeting.
Janet opens the video by emphasising that both PSNC staff and Committee Members know how difficult things are at the moment, and says that she wants to give some honest feedback on where the sector is and what PSNC is doing on contractors’ behalf.
The video covers a range of topics, including:
- The key points Janet will be raising in her upcoming meeting with the Pharmacy Minister;
- Recent conversations with the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) about Pharmacy First;
- The need to be realistic about all the massive demands on the NHS, whilst still pushing for what pharmacy urgently needs;
- Concern that warm words from officials have not turned into palpable actions to help support pharmacies;
- How price concessions are exacerbating the precarious financial situation.
