The NPA at the Pharmacy show

Located at stand position PG40, you were able to find us on the blue carpet route which ran from the entrance to the Keynote Theatre. On our stand this year we were excited to welcome a number of our business partners:



FMD Connect is a custom-built standalone solution created specifically to enable its users to be fully compliant in line with the Falsified Medicine Directive legislation.




MedicSpot is a digital health company which turns pharmacies into private GP walk in clinics by using latest advancements in telemedicine technology. The unique MedicSpot clinical station allows patients to have a video consultations with MedicSpot’s doctors from the pharmacy’s consulting room.’s unique platform enables NHS and Private patients to search, compare and book vaccinations across the UK by searching for their nearest or most convenient pharmacy travel clinic.

For every private referral that sends, their fee is £12 (inc. VAT) per patient, which is charged directly to the patient (a booking fee). They then ask the pharmacy to discount the £12 from the total cost of that individual’s vaccination.
