How we can help
The National Pharmacy Association (NPA) today launched what it calls “a bold plan” for England’s community pharmacies to protect the population from Covid-19, improve access to primary care and prevent ill health.
The plan, called How We Can Help, argues that pharmacies are well placed for a central role in delivering booster COVID19 vaccinations, allowing GPs to focus on clearing the care backlog in the NHS. It highlights pharmacists’ strong face-to-face relationships with patients and years of experience delivering flu vaccines. It also covers pharmacy’s broader potential in preventing ill health, managing long term conditions and providing access to care near to where people live, work and shop. Read the plan below:
