Numark freezes membership fees

As part of its continued support for community pharmacy, Numark is freezing its membership fee for the next 12 months.

This follows its recent announcement that it would not impose a fuel surcharge to its members via its parent wholesale company Phoenix.

Numark members will continue to pay a total of £131 per month for the extensive range of product discounts and essential services on offer, all of which are in line with the mission to develop the standards of care delivered by independent community pharmacies.

Commenting on the rationale behind the price freeze, John D’Arcy, managing director of Numark said: “The imposed cuts in England have come at an economically challenging time with no consultation, so it’s crucial that our members make the most of the revenue they do have to ensure they not only survive, but thrive.

"We also recognise that it continues to be a challenging time for members in the other UK home countries, so the membership fee freeze is designed to continue to support them too." 

This update follows the news that the organisation has paid £23.5 million to its members in rebates in the past year, an average of £748 per month, per member - almost a six fold return on their £131 membership fee.

The fee freeze kicks in from June 1st 2017 for the next 12 months.
