A visionary alternative

It is difficult to know what the final outcome will be of the government’s plans for pharmacy. I assume that the worst case scenario is that the full £170m cut originally proposed would be implemented from December. And the best case consists of whatever the Department of Health can be persuaded to do as a result of further negotiations and campaigning. There is no doubt that the strength of representations, including over two million signatures on a petition, has not passed unnoticed by politicians and government officials.

A nail-biting wait

Brexit has introduced a great deal of uncertainty concerning the future of the of the British economy. Investments are being delayed and the markets are jittery. Let’s be honest – we all like certainty. Being certain about something enables us to plan, to invest and to look to the future with confidence. So what should we make of the fact that Parliament has broken for its summer recess and the expected announcement regarding the government’s plans to cut funding for pharmacy in England by £170 million has not been made?

Dealing with the DH bombshell

The pre-Christmas bombshell announcement on cuts to the community pharmacy budget has been exercising minds locally and nationally. Today, I am at the House of Commons making a presentation sponsored by Kate Hoey MP. Other than MPs, the invited audience includes GPs, nurses, hospital consultants, local authority councillors, CCG chairs, people from Healthwatch, social services, patient groups and NHS England and, of course, pharmacists, including NPA and Pharmacy London chairs and the RPS president – a really eclectic group! Unfortunately, a consultant from St Thomas’ cannot come due to the junior hospital doctors’ strike, which is also today.
