On Thursday 8 June, the Committee launched its much awaited inquiry into pharmacy.
Malcolm Harrison, Chief Executive of the CCA said:
“We welcome the Health Committee’s much-awaited inquiry into pharmacy. Whilst the recent announcement of investment into the sector is welcome, this is new money for new activity. The historic underfunding of community pharmacy remains, and Primary Care Networks (PCNs) continue to directly recruit community pharmacists.
We hope that this timely inquiry will outline the challenges facing the pharmacy sector and establish the support we need.
The CCA looks forward to submitting written evidence to the inquiry”.
