Lobbying politicians

Lobbying politicians

PSNC works to lobby a variety of stakeholders nationally, including Parliamentarians, key NHS organisations, charities and patient representatives, to ensure that they understand the role of community pharmacy and support the development of the sector. This work includes responding to consultations, meeting with key personnel, and supporting the work of the All Party Pharmacy Group.

In addition to this, PSNC offers support to LPCs looking to lobby on local issues or engage with their local politicians. LPCs can access a range of resources, including a guide to hosting an MP visit, below, or contact the office if they need more specific advice.
