Campaigning for community pharmacy in the 2019 General Election

November 19, 2019

The National Pharmacy Association (NPA), Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) have created resources to help promote community pharmacy ahead of the General Election on 12th December.

The upcoming election presents a great opportunity for the sector to be recognised as a valuable health and wellbeing asset, and a solution to many longstanding problems in the NHS. To help make these messages clear to all candidates standing in the election, the pharmacy organisations have created a shared ‘pharmacy manifesto’, which sets out how we hope any new Government will commit to investing in the sector.

This joint manifesto is available in our ‘General Election Hub‘ and may be a useful document for any LPCs or contractors who are engaging with parliamentary candidates in the lead up to the 2019 General Election.

The ‘General Election Hub‘ also contains some additional guidance from PSNC for LPCs and contractors hosting pharmacy visits with candidates in the coming weeks. This includes some tips on content and key messages, as well as a template invitation and press release.
