How we work
The CCA works closely with government and other professional bodies on pharmacy issues, addressing matters affecting our members at both a national and local level.
CCA members care passionately about the future of the community pharmacy network and the positive impact the sector can have on prevention, healthcare and in supporting the NHS. We work together collaboratively to ensure the future vitality and viability of the sector.
The CCA is formally represented on the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee, Community Pharmacy Scotland and Community Pharmacy Wales, and on statutory local pharmaceutical representative bodies across the United Kingdom.
The CCA maintains six standing working groups, consisting of representatives from each of its members. These groups meet regularly to support the evolution of the role of community pharmacy, and how it can address the priorities of the NHS across England, Scotland and Wales.
In addition to the standing working groups listed below, the CCA works closely with other organisations and supports three cross-sector working groups. Find out more about our joint working here.
