What impact will pharmacy funding cuts have on you? Take our survey for the chance to win £100


28 Nov 2016

The Pharmacist is conducting a survey into the impact of the funding cuts for community pharmacy.

Is your pharmacy going to have to change the way it does business? Will you apply for the Pharmacy Access Fund? Do you think that pharmacists will experience increased stress and burnout as a result? Have your say on how the proposed funding package will change things for you, your pharmacy, and your community.

Pharmacies are set to receive £113m less than expected from December 2016 to March 2017 and £208m less the following year. The cuts amount to 12% in the coming months and 7% for the next financial year, compared with current spending.

PSNC has called the spending cuts “madness” and “founded on ignorance”, but what will the individual impact be? Take part in the survey and let us know.

Participants will be entered into a draw to win £100 worth of John Lewis vouchers.

You can take part in the survey here.
