PSNC defends clinical vision in face of reader criticism

C&D, Annabelle Collins and Samuel Horti, 19 February 2016

Community pharmacists have criticized PSNC’s three-phase plan for the sector on the basis that it fails to consider forthcoming funding cuts and ignored pharmacists supply role. PSNC agreed that it would be “unaffordable” for contractors to offer all services to set out in the plan.

HDA Media And Political Bulletin – 22 February 2016

From Factory to Pharmacy

As part of our mission to build awareness, understanding and appreciation of the vital importance of the healthcare distribution sector, we developed an infographic explaining the availability of medicines. It identifies the factors that can impact drug supply, as well as the measures that HDA members undertake day in, day out to help mitigate the risks of patients not receiving their medicines.
