Commenting Malcolm Harrison, Chief Executive of the CCA said:
“I look forward to giving evidence to the Health and Social Care Select Committee as part of their timely inquiry into pharmacy.
The CCA has been at the forefront of efforts to highlight both the fragility of the network but also the positive future community pharmacy could have through investment and efforts to address workload and workforce challenges.
I will be highlighting to members of the Committee the urgent need to fix the foundations so that the sector can be harnessed to build capacity and resilience in primary care”.
