Pharmacy Owner Events Programme

As part of our commitment to engaging with pharmacy owners and LPCs, Community Pharmacy England will be holding a series of regional roadshow events across the country. 

Taking place through July, the events will see Chief Executive Janet Morrison and her team, as well as Committee Members, visiting every NHS England region to hear directly from pharmacy owners and LPCs. As well as sharing your views, the events will give an opportunity to hear about the work Community Pharmacy England is doing to try to ease the critical pressures you are facing, and to ask questions of Janet and the team. 

These face-to-face events will be held during the evening, after the team has spent the afternoon having discussions with LPCs Chairs and Chief Officers in the region. Attendees will have lots of opportunity to share their views via polling and discussion sessions, and to put questions to the team. 

Community Pharmacy England’s Regional Representatives, as both Members of our Committee and the representatives of independent pharmacy owners in their region, will also speak at their local roadshow events.  

These events are a chance to learn more about how Community Pharmacy England works and the context of the decisions we make, as well as to talk about the many issues that matter to you and the future. 

The events will cover topics such as: 

  • The ongoing critical pressures in community pharmacy; 
  • Work on the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework for 2024/25; 
  • Our vision and strategy for the future of the sector; 
  • How community pharmacy fits into the wider political and NHS climate; 
  • How Community Pharmacy England operates; and 
  • How you can input to and support our work. 

These events are part of our ongoing sector engagement programme which aims to strengthen transparency and communication with pharmacy owners. 

Book your place 

Please see below for a list of our regional roadshow events. All events will be held from 7:30pm -9pm, with doors open from 6:45pm when a hot buffet and light refreshments will be available.  

The events are all free to attend, but you are asked to register in advance. Please note, attendance is for pharmacy owners only, places are made available on a first come first served basis. 

For those who may be unable to attend their region’s event, we are planning to hold a hybrid session later in the summer. We will also be continuing to engage with pharmacy owners throughout the year via our regular polling and our attendance at numerous sector conferences, including the Pharmacy Show.
