The Landscape of Community Pharmacy: Perspectives from Pharmacists Across the UK

In the ever changing and often challenging landscape of healthcare, pharmacists play a vital role in supporting patient health. In the UK, the pharmacy contract forms the backbone of professional engagement with the healthcare system, outlining the terms and conditions under which they provide their indispensable services. However, within the UK, each country—England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales—holds distinct nuances and variations within the pharmacy contract, shaping the experiences and challenges faced by pharmacists practicing in different regions.

We hear directly from the voices that matter most—our Numark member pharmacists. We uncover the challenges they face and the changes they envision for the future.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Gordon, Graham, Garth and Saghir for giving up their time to speak to us. It is important that we seek to support contractors in all countries and we are pleased to announce we are hosting a series of advisory boards designed to explore how we can better support our members.
