NPA Coverage in the media

The NPA’s press office helps to safeguard the interests of the community pharmacy sector in the media and ensures the voice of NPA members’ is well represented. The press office writes regular columns for the pharmacy trade press and often organises NPA spokespeople to be interviewed on national and regional media to talk about the issues which matter most to pharmacists and patients. We also advise NPA members about handling local media interest in their pharmacy – whether it’s bad news or good news.

Below is a list of some media coverage which the NPA has appeared in.
