Let’s all build on partnerships

By NPA head of communications Stephen Fishwick The road to success is rarely one taken alone.

For nearly 100 years, we have brought community pharmacists together, to pool resources, learn from each other and move forwards together. In tough times the sector needs to stick together to develop solutions that benefit everyone and underpin progress at scale. That’s why we’ve chosen Forwards in Partnership as the theme for our national conference in Manchester on June 20. The conference is a collaboration between the NPA and Pharmacy Magazine, so the idea of partnership is at the very heart of arrangements.
