Pharmacy Voice has announced it will close at the end of April 2017, following the NPA’s withdrawal from the organisation that was announced in December.
The Pharmacy Voice board has been making plans for its closure and the transfer of its representative activities back to its constituent member associations. These processes will be complete by the end of March, and the Pharmacy Voice office will close at the end of April. In a statement, the organisation stated that subject to legal requirements and timings, Pharmacy Voice “will be formally wound-up over the Summer.”
The three trade association members of Pharmacy Voice – the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies (AIM), the Company Chemists’ Association (CCA) and the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) – will continue to work together on key sector-wide work streams previously delivered by Pharmacy Voice, including delivering the vision set out in the Community Pharmacy Forward View.
