Forwards in Partnership
The conference is a collaboration between the NPA and Pharmacy Magazine
NPA chief executive, Mark Lyonette, said:
“The NPA is working in partnership with others in the sector and with the NHS, to find a positive way forward for community pharmacy. The road to success is not a journey that can be taken alone. That is why we have chosen Forwards in Partnership as our theme. We are delighted that the Secretary of State has agreed to take part; we believe it demonstrates an eagerness to engage with the sector, and an understanding on his part that pharmacies are essential to the health of the nation.”
