PDA asks community pharmacists to complete survey on availability of commonly prescribed medicines


Share post:

The Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) has urged the community pharmacies to complete a short survey on the availability of commonly prescribed medicines.

PDA is hearing from members working in community pharmacy about challenges they are facing in fulfilling prescriptions for some of the most common medicines, including antibiotics. It wants to hear from pharmacists on the front line about their recent experiences.

The association said: “Whilst at this time of year the incidence of infections and illnesses can be heightened, demand is seemingly higher than usual, and we would like to hear more about how this is impacting on you and the patients in your care,”

It added: “The survey is particularly for pharmacists working in community; however, any members are invited to email [email protected] with their views on this issue.”
