The theme of this year’s Ask Your Pharmacist week is ‘Discover your local pharmacy’.
According to the NPA, which organises the week, the theme will allow pharmacies to showcase their full range of services, “surprising people with what is on offer on their doorstep in local pharmacies”.

NPA head of communications, Stephen Fishwick, said: “This year’s initiative is very much about the network of pharmacy premises, what happens inside them and the people who work there.

Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2017 will run from November 6-13.
