Commoditisation is a real threat

By Gareth Jones, NPA public affairs manager. A dangerous policy idea circulating in parts of Government right now is that local pharmacies can be replaced by an Amazon-style medicines service. The cuts to pharmacy funding in England are consistent with a plan to significantly reduce local provision and introduce a superficially cheaper medicines supply service based on centralised, automated dispensing hubs. This is predicated on the flawed view that pharmacy is just a distribution mechanism for product, rather than a valuable health and social care asset at the heart of local communities.

NPA decision to leave PV leaves pharmacy divided

By Richard Thomas, editor, Pharmacy Magazine. The lobbying power of the medical profession is often put down to its unity. Doctors all seem to pull in the same direction. Actually, this is largely a myth. Behind closed doors medics fight like ferrets in a sack. What they are good at, however, is managing their differences and presenting a united front. If only pharmacy could do the same. The NPA’s decision to pull out of Pharmacy Voice, which will in all likelihood spell the end of the latter, came as a blow to those who believe the sector can only benefit from having a unified voice and consistent messaging in its relations with policymakers and NHS.
