RPS is gearing up for #pharmacy24

Survey on pharmacist interventions with patients in support of the ’24 hours in pharmacy’ Twitter event

The second @WePharmacists ’24 hours in pharmacy’ Twitter event takes place on Thursday 24 March. The social media event is a brilliant opportunity to put a spotlight on all the great work that pharmacists from all sectors do for patients every day and the RPS is urging the profession to get involved.

For 24-hours on the Thursday before Good Friday pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are invited to tweet their activities using the hashtag #pharmacy24. This year you are also invited to share your pictures on Instagram and facebook too, using the #pharmacy24 hash tag.

In support of this year’s event the RPS also wants to capture and record information about the wide range of patient-focused activities pharmacists carry out every day. To do this we are asking you to complete this short survey and tell us about key interventions you have undertaken and services you have provided during the last week that had a demonstrable impact on improved patient safety and care. We want to share these stories and statistics as broadly as possible to illustrate the valuable contribution of pharmacy to the NHS.

So if you are a pharmacist with a patient focused story to share please let us know by completing our survey form.

#pharmacy24 is a fantastic opportunity to advertise the unique and highly skilled work of pharmacists in a really positive and engaging way. Please try to find the time to join in if you can. You can find more information about the event and how to take part on the WeCommunities website.
