RPS calls on Pharmacy Minister to improve safety

RPS in England is calling for all pharmacy teams to be included in support for the workforce to deliver frontline care safely.

We’ve written to Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Health Jo Churchill MP, seeking reassurances and clarifications on three key policy areas to protect pharmacy teams and support you to look after patients.

The letter calls for:

  • Assurances that pharmacists and all health professionals in primary care will have equal access to the new PPE portal.
  • Clarification on the new Test and Trace programme, when staff members may have to self-isolate, and the impact on patient access to services.
  • Assurances that all staff in pharmacy teams who want an antibody test will be offered one as quickly as possible.
