‘More than a name change’: PSNC rebrands as Community Pharmacy England


Share post:

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) on Tuesday (June 30) renamed itself as Community Pharmacy England, promising a “strengthened commitment” to champion and engage with the sector.

“The name Community Pharmacy England better reflects the breadth of work that we do to both represent and support community pharmacies in England. We are their champion,” the pharmacy negotiator said.

Explaining that the rebranding exercise was in line with proposals put forward by the Review Steering Group (RSG), it said the rebrand was part of its Transforming Pharmacy Representation (TAPR) work and that it would signal the beginning of a “new engagement strategy” to build stronger relationships with pharmacy owners.

“Becoming Community Pharmacy England is much more than a name change or a new logo, it is a driver for cultural change across our organisation.

“Our members want us to be more authoritative, representative, and influential, and rebranding gives us a clearer and stronger voice, helping us to better speak out for community pharmacy.”

Speaking about the new identity, chief executive Janet Morrison, said: “Our new branding embodies our need to influence more powerfully on your behalf, coming alongside a commitment from everyone here to shift the ways in which we engage with you.”
