Autumn 2023: How we’ve been representing and talking to you

Community Pharmacy England remains fully focused on improving outcomes for all community pharmacy businesses and throughout this autumn we have once again been influencing a range of important stakeholders on pharmacy’s behalf.

We have been briefing influential MPs, Ministers, health charities, patient groups, think tanks, and national press journalists to highlight the critical pressures on pharmacies and press for solutions to these. A key focus in making the case for further investment in pharmacy has been the Vision for Community Pharmacy which we have been talking with a large number of influential advocates about.

To help get our key messages across we have taken part in a variety of external events and activities, ranging from the political party conferences to our own external stakeholder gatherings. With the Vision in hand, we have been raising awareness and shedding light on the critical issues affecting the sector, to build wider support for pharmacy.

As well as looking outwards we have continued our work to try to engage with pharmacy owners and the wider community pharmacy sector. This has included having a presence at various pharmacy sector events and conferences, such as the Pharmacy Show, as well as hosting the annual LPC conference and some digital events.
