NPA publishes “Stories from the NHS Frontline” to celebrate pharmacy heroes

31 Jul 2020

The National Pharmacy Association is proud to announce the publication of an online collection of stories from pharmacy teams across the country that showcases the value and hard work of community pharmacy during the coronavirus pandemic.

Called ‘Stories from the NHS Frontline’, it appears at the website

The collection includes incidents where pharmacy teams have gone ‘above and beyond’ to support patients and their communities. There are also stories about communities rallying round to support their local pharmacy plus where pharmacy teams have innovated to respond to the challenges of coronavirus.

Mark Lyonette, Chief Executive of the NPA, said:

“There are many great stories in this compilation that really illustrate the heroic work that has been going on across the sector.

“We wanted to create a public platform from which pharmacy teams can describe their experiences in their own words. Overall it makes for a very authentic and compelling story of service and resilience, about which everyone can be proud.

“It’s something we’ll share with the media and policy makers, so that they are reminded of the huge contribution of pharmacy teams on the NHS frontline during the coronavirus crisis.”
