Get ready for Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2016

By Stephen Fishwick, NPA head of communications. I was intrigued recently to find in the NPA basement a photograph of ‘Bradd The Cure Bear’, the cuddly mascot of an Ask Your Pharmacist campaign roadshow 20 years ago. Apparently Bradd provided educational entertainment for young shoppers by performing a special show on pharmaceutical safety. Whilst Bradd seems to have gone into hibernation, the Ask Your Pharmacist initiative has continued in various guises ever since. This year’s Ask Your Pharmacist Week will take place November 7-14 with the theme More Than Medicines. Organised by the National Pharmacy Association, the week provides a platform for pharmacy public awareness activities across the UK. It also serves as a prompt for conversations with key stakeholders at a local level about community pharmacy services.

How should we define success in cuts campaign?

By NPA chairman Ian Strachan. With over one-and-a-half million signatures, our petition has shown the Government that the public cares about pharmacy. On the closing day of the Department of Health (DH) consultation on ‘Community pharmacy in 2016/17 and beyond’, we will be presenting a petition to 10 Downing Street with over 1.5 million signatures. Our petition is the largest currently circulating in the UK and the largest healthcare petition of all time in this country. Think about that for a moment. It is worth a “wow,” isn’t it?

You ARE making a difference

By Ian Strachan, NPA chairman. The campaign opposing the cuts to pharmacy services is having the desired effect, but we must ensure we keep up the momentum. Recently I met the pharmacy minister, Alistair Burt, at his office in Whitehall. The meeting coincided with a campaign milestone: that same day we reached a quarter of a million signatures on the Downing Street petition against Government plans that put pharmacy services in England at risk. By the time you read this, the number will have at least doubled.

Keep your teams in the loop

By Ian Strachan, NPA chairman. We have a duty to be straight and open with our staff about the Government’s planned cuts and ‘efficiencies.’ What should you say to your staff about the Government’s plans for cuts and ‘efficiencies’? As a pharmacy owner, this is something I’ve been considering since the end of December. You don’t want to scare them, but equally I feel we all have a duty to be straight and open with them. After all, the Department of Health’s proposals could have very direct consequences for all of us, if not immediately then certainly in the long-term.
