In December 2015, the department of health and NHS England announced there would be a 6% reduction in funding through the community pharmacy contractual framework. This will have a substantial impact on pharmacy business owners, their employees and locum pharmacists. It is calculated that this reduction in funding may result in up to 3,000 pharmacies having to close down.

At the JMW Vicary pharmacy at the Medical Centre, we seek to provide an uncompromisingly high quality of care, offering a range of services to patients at no additional cost.

We are raising this concern, as we feel there is a real risk that the extent of services may have to be compromised.

We are currently asking patients to make their opinion known by signing the petition in our pharmacy.
