APPG launches inquiry into the impact of COVID-19 on pharmacy 

November 17, 2020

The All-Party Pharmacy Group (APPG) has launched a flash inquiry into the impact of COVID-19 on pharmacy.  

The aim of this work is to examine the impact of the pandemic on the pharmacy sector, understanding the pressures and challenges that frontline pharmacy teams and pharmacy contractors are facing 

The inquiry is running until 30 November, after which a report will be put together based on the findings, to include a set of policy recommendations on what support and reforms are required for the sector to remain sustainable.  

To inform this work, a survey for the pharmacy workforce has been issued, which contractors and pharmacy staff are encouraged to complete. A series of interviews with key sector stakeholders are also being conducted to help gather data and written submissions are also being accepted. For LPCs and other organisations who would like to contribute in writing, please contact the secretariat for more information on how to do this: contact@pharmacyappg.co.uk 

Further details and the Terms of Reference for the inquiry are available on the APPG website
