Supporting Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2016

This week we are supporting Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2016 which runs from the 7 - 14th November, with the aim of raising awareness of local community pharmacy services. According to the National Pharmaceutical Association (NPA), up to 3000 local pharmacies are at risk of closure, which is nearly 25% across the UK. This will add a staggering 1 million patients EVERY MONTH to struggling GP and NHS services.  Local pharmacies are a key part of local communities and they are a very good first port of call for advice on many of our common health issues. Pharmacies’ can offer a range of services within their community, including expert advice, delivering medication and long opening hours. It is important we make use of these facilities, preventing further closures and putting pressure on local GP and NHS services. At Bluebird Care Plymouth & Torbay we are supporting local pharmacies in our area, and helping to raise awareness of the campaign. Focus on your local Pharmacy this week, and show your support! Visit  the Ask Your Pharmacist Week 2016 website, to find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved.
