Wes Streeting becomes new Health Secretary

Wes Streeting MP has been appointed Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in the new Government.

Our CEO Janet Morrison said:

“We would like to welcome the new Secretary of State to his role. We worked with Wes and his policy advisors whilst they were in Opposition, and have been encouraged by his recognition of the critical pharmacy funding pressures and support for the sector on the campaign trail.

We look forward to further strengthening Wes’ connection with community pharmacy and to working constructively with him and his colleagues to secure a sustainable future for community pharmacy that also supports the new Government’s health ambitions. This includes early discussions to assure the future for this critical local healthcare network through the conclusion of the 2024/25 CPCF negotiations and to explore Labour’s interest in developing a community pharmacy prescribing service.”
