The Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) has helped its members to secure around £196,000 last year from employers who treated pharmacists badly or breached their rights in some way.

The association strives to help members to resolve workplace disputes quickly, locally, and amicably, however some cases need escalation into the legal system, it said.

It helps pharmacists to understand and exercise their rights in case unfair treatment occurs to them.

Though no employee expects to be treated badly, this is the reality for some pharmacists, the PDA stated.

Encouraging all employed and locum pharmacists to become a member, the association said it could offer better help to those who join the PDA.
