The Pharmacist deputy editor, Beth Kennedy discusses the next steps for the sector after a high court ruling rejected pharmacy organisations’ cases against Government cuts to English pharmacy funding.
‘Will there be any kind of appeal to this decision? Is there a new angle that we should come at to fight these cuts?
‘Or are they going to continue and the best thing to do is to work out how their effects can be mitigated?’ she asks.
The Department of Health told The Pharmacist: ‘We are pleased that the judge has upheld the Government’s position on this case and we welcome this decision.’
