Ask Your Pharmacist week returns in November

This year’s Ask Your Pharmacist week will take place in November, the National Pharmacy Association has announced.

The week-long event, which is designed to raise awareness of how community pharmacy improves health outcomes in local communities, runs from November 2-9 under the theme ‘your local pharmacy in the NHS family.’

“Campaign materials will therefore highlight pharmacy-based NHS services and that community pharmacy teams work as a team with other health service providers to deliver patient-centred care,” the NPA said.

A survey conducted on behalf of the NPA in June found that just 29 per cent of people are “definitely aware” community pharmacies are part of the NHS.
