How can we help?
You are here:
Some pages and resources in the NPA website are restricted to members or user groups, and require you to login and have the correct permissions to view. Try logging in to the website. If this is unsuccessful and you are taken back to the login page but you believe you should have access please contact us at email@example.com.
The username & password is stored against your pharmacy branch. There are a number of ways that you can retrieve your details:
All the results that are returned by your search will contain the text you searched for somewhere in the record, for example the search will be returning results for all words you have entered; ‘responsible pharmacist’ the search will look for records containing both of these words and return all pages containing them.
You can avoid this happening by searching for an exact phrase. You can search for an exact phrase by enclosing it in double quotation marks.
For example, you might search for:
This search would return all the records containing the words "responsible" and "pharmacist", but not necessarily together.
If you searched for:
the search would now only return records containing the exact phrase "responsible pharmacist”.
The search engine looks for exact matches for each word in the text you are searching for; the first thing to do is check that your spelling is correct (especially when searching for things like proper names).
Please note: The search may not return any results for words or terms that you are entering and this could be because we do not have the pages or resources on the website. If you believe that there should be results returned please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are searching for medicine related information you will need to go into ‘IRIS’ the NPA’s information database and use the search inside this application.
This is because you need to login. If you access the Webshop without logging it will take you to the public version of the Webshop which does not hold your pharmacy branch credentials.
The NPA website and the search function in the IRIS (information database) are not integrated. If you are searching for medicine related terms please go to the IRIS application.
If you are an NPA member you will have access to IRIS. IRIS is not publicly available on the website and you will need to login first in order to view the link. The link to IRIS is situated on the home page of the website under the IRIS image and also from the pharmacy support section.
For many community pharmacists the benefit of having a web prescence does not warrant the cost and effort involved in developing their own indvidual website.We have therefore provided the facility within the NPA website to allow members to create a web presence at no cost - and with no need for any expertise in web design.Creating a 'microsite' through the NPA website will provide you with the time to understand how a website can be part of your business's communication plan.
The optimum size of the images to use on the build your own website facility is 170 x 70 pixels. You can check the size of the image you uploaded by right clicking on the picture you have used, selecting ‘properties’ from the menu option and then selecting ‘summary’. The summary shows you the width and height of the image – illustrated below.
If you need to resize your image try doing this in the photo editor application on your PC. If you do not have photo/image editor software there are many free versions available on the internet. Applications like gimp, paint.net, photoscape or Google picassa all have photo/image editing capabilities.
The text editor is what you use to build the pages of text on your website. If you hover your mouse over the editor bar it will tell you which functions are available.
You can add up to a maximum of 10 branches.
As soon as you start creating your website it will automatically save what you have entered. To continue to edit the website just click ‘edit my website’ above the login button. You can also view your website from this section.
You can edit your website at any time by clicking on the ‘edit my website’ link above the login button.
Once you have got to the last section of the build your own website pages you will see a button labelled ‘submit microsite’. Upon clicking this button this will send an email alert to the NPA marketing team and we will review your website and set it live for you.
