Last edition of CPN magazine


The recently published May 2021 edition of PSNC’s Community Pharmacy News (CPN) magazine will be the last issue produced.

As part of work to make PSNC communications more relevant and useful for community pharmacy teams during the pandemic, last year we introduced a daily email newsletter for contractors and their teams. The newsletters have proved popular and alongside that we have seen relatively low levels of engagement with the monthly magazine style round-up offered by CPN.

Our audience is increasingly engaging with our news content, and there is also growing interest in our social media and Chief Executive’s video messages. This no surprise: digital channels have been PSNC’s principal means of communication with contractors for many years now, but the COVID-19 pandemic has made the speed of those communications more important.

PSNC will continue to produce its daily email updates so that community pharmacists and their teams receive important information and guidance from us in a timely manner. We will also continue to publish the content that appeared in CPN on our website: this will include the Chief Executive’s blog, and the monthly briefings from the Dispensing and Supply Team.

If you disagree with this decision and feel that CPN magazine is still a valuable tool for you, please complete our website user survey to let us know (see details below). We are currently reviewing our website and digital communications and if there is sufficient demand for it then we can reconsider the option of a monthly publication once that work is complete.

Website user survey

Ahead of a significant upgrade, we would like to know what you think of the PSNC website. Please take five minutes to complete our short survey about how you use the website now, and what you would like from it in the future.
