Help us shape future pharmacy practice

Many of you responded to our survey asking for your views on the challenges and opportunities that have had an impact on your work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • You told us there has been better use of pharmacists’ clinical expertise and new ways of working that you’d like to keep
  • You’ve been disappointed by a lack of recognition for all pharmacy teams as part of the NHS
  • You’re also keen to see development of the digital infrastructure to improve access to information and enable remote consultations when needed. 

We’re holding a summit today bringing together more than 30 NHS and pharmacy organisations from across Great Britain to start a dialogue on how these and other lessons learned from the pandemic can be used to make a positive impact on the future of pharmacy.

You’ll have another opportunity to contribute through a Facebook Live between 7-8pm Wednesday 17th June, where you’ll hear more about the summit and can give us your views. What changes do you think could transform the future of pharmacy practice?

Your feedback will help us adapt to the new pandemic landscape, shape future policy and lobbying activity, and engage with other professions and external stakeholders. 

Follow @royalpharmsoc on Facebook to be notified for the start of the event.

If you can’t make it on 17th, the session will be available as a recording afterwards.


We need your support.


Your dedication and commitment during the pandemic has been exceptional.

As we brace for a surge of coronavirus infections, we know that pharmacy will be at the forefront of delivering healthcare.

Whether it’s flu vaccinations or dealing with local lockdowns we need decisions and assurances from the Government to make sure our profession can cope. We must make sure pharmacists get enough supplies of PPE, rapid access to testing in all care settings, and the recognition you deserve.

You told us that our leadership and resources during in the early months of the pandemic were of critical importance. We are now updating our highly valued COVID-19 resources and training webinars to make sure they reflect current - and changing - guidance.

If the enormous mental and physical strain of the past few months is repeated ahead of this winter, the health service will be on its knees. We will be there to make sure pharmacists get mental health and wellbeing support.

We will continue to work hard to give you the tools and guidance to do your job safely. And fight to make sure you get the recognition you deserve.
