The Sun asked us to respond to this article.

Chief Executive, Janet Morrison OBE, said:  

“Pharmacies want to provide this new contraception service for patients, but some are clearly taking the decision that the 30% funding cuts they have faced in recent years make this impossible. We want the Government and NHS to give pharmacies the help and funding they need to offer this service and even more to support patients.”

Pharmacy owners are reminded of the requirement to complete the 2023 workforce survey, which is a mandatory requirement for all pharmacy owners. The survey will close on Sunday 17th December 2023.
