Community pharmacy greatness
In its 16th year, a joint Pharmacy Business Awards and Pharmacy Business Conference will shine a light on the critical role community pharmacy plays in a struggling NHS...despite the funding cuts that threaten to reduce the profession's capacity...
Good things come to those who wait. Community pharmacists have had to wait a long 12 months but it is back once again - the Pharmacy Business Awards, celebrating the best independent community pharmacy has to offer.
The new Intercontinental London – The 02 will host the awards on Thursday October 13 and in a change to previous years, Pharmacy Business will also stage a conference on the same day, immediately before the awards evening, which will give community pharmacists the chance to talk about what they do so well - improving people's health and well-being and preventing people getting ill in the first place.
The conference, entitled Passion For Healthcare, will showcase how community pharmacists are making a difference in the following areas; medicines optimisation, healthy living, embarrassing and intimate health issues, GP collaboration, reaching local commissioners, self-care pharmacy, the digitalisation of healthcare, telehealth and service innovation.
