Red tape and time to care

The red tape and time to care toolkit is the third in a suite of NPA Member toolkits related to the Manifesto for Independent Community Pharmacy.

This toolkit is intended to complement the work that the NPA has undertaken nationally over recent years:

  • Through Pharmacy Voice we put a series of proposal to Government as part of the Government’s Red Tape Challenge
  • We successfully argued that the General Pharmaceutical Council should have a formal understanding with other agencies (such as the MHRA and NHS England) to reduce the incidence of duplication of inspection
  • We successfully persuaded the MHRA to make provisions for the continuation of small-scale trading between pharmacies (without a WDL) when the pharmacy wholesaling exemption was removed to comply with European Law
  • We have sought to reduce the burden associated with problems in the medicine supply chain
