Open letter to Chancellor Rishi Sunak
The NPA need your help to make the case for independent community pharmacy to receive a better funding settlement from the government.
In light of the recent EY report, the NPA produced an open letter for publication in a national newspaper.
The Mirror featured this letter alongside a punchy opinion piece from MP Jackie Doyle-Price, the recently elected chair of the All-Party Pharmacy Group, and a former Conservative Health Minister. She described community pharmacies as “the quiet heroes of the NHS” who were “being abandoned to financial ruin through consistent underfunding and the costs of staying open during coronavirus”.
