Pharmacy Support - Funding and workforce plan from new SoS Coffey

The English Pharmacy Board chair Thorrun Govind has urged the new health secretary Thérèse Coffey to support community pharmacy with a long-term workforce plan and strong investment in education and training.

Ms Govind challenged Ms Coffey (pictured), who last night replaced Stephen Barclay in prime minister Liz Truss’s cabinet reshuffle, to make the most of community pharmacists and their teams across the country by giving them the resources to prevent illness, manage long-term conditions more effectively and ensure patients go to pharmacies before other parts of the NHS.

Ms Govind was also at pains to stress that Government funding would support pharmacist independent prescribers to “make a huge difference for patients".

“The new secretary of state is faced with an urgent challenge to improve patient access to care, whilst ensuring hard-working frontline health professionals get the support they need. Pressures are already building ahead of what will be another challenging winter for the NHS,” she said.
