As you will no doubt be aware, there are cuts coming to the budget which will affect community pharmacy. As an Executive, we are worried that the cuts will adversely affect the public, as pharmacists are currently the most accessible health professional.

Therefore, we are actively campaigning for the government to reassess the cuts, before they are imposed to the detriment of patients and our careers.
