In response to unprecedented demand from members for community pharmacy funding and contract knowledge, the NPA are pleased to announce a series of short funding related webinars.

These will be hosted by Harpreet Chana, NPA’s Digital Programme Director (former Head of Funding Strategy at PSNC) and Garry Myers, PSNC Negotiating team member who will deliver complex funding information from a contractor’s perspective. The webinars will focus on presenting the hosts’ collective knowledge of community pharmacy funding in a practical way that can be applied to your businesses and to help prepare you for any potential changes to the contract.

Each webinar will be delivered monthly from March to November 2019 usually on a Tuesday from 7.30-8.30pm and will cover a range of topics as detailed below. They are shorter in length (~30mins) allowing members and their teams to pick and choose from the ‘menu ‘of topics following the live event. Register for any of the future webinars by clicking on the links below.
