NPA – National Pharmacy Association’s ‘One Day to Save our Pharmacies’ – day of action on 20th June 2024


Community Pharmacy Derbyshire are aware of the NPA action, but it is not for us to tell contractors what specific action they take. Contractors have to consider the community pharmacy contract is not strictly a contract in legal terms and that the work they perform for the NHS is governed by regulation. As such, they need to be mindful not to breach those regulations and Patient Safety must be paramount.


CP Derbyshire have made local NHS colleagues aware of the campaign and are supportive of contractors who take part. We are not collating activity because we don’t have the resource and it’s likely that specifics could change so we are saying to contractors, out of courtesy, to inform local practices and other local healthcare professionals and of course your patients of your intentions.


If contractors use social media then as we always say, tag Community Pharmacy Derbyshire into your posts for extra awareness and reach.
