News & Views

Creating a momentum for change will be an important prerequisite for ensuring that the interests of the individual pharmacist can be properly addressed within the profession.

It will be necessary to create a two-way flow of information, which will ensure that:

  • Your views are always taken into account
  • Awareness of the individual pharmacist agenda within the profession is heightened
  • You are kept up to date with any developments

This will be done in a number of ways:

Latest News

We will keep you informed of any general developments by posting any news that is relevant to the individual pharmacist agenda on this section of the site. This may be news of a general nature, e.g. the impact of new European legislation on employment rights, or it may be more specific, e.g. results of an important pharmacy test case or a favourable pharmacist Employment Tribunal.

Press Releases And Position Statements

We will ensure that awareness can be heightened by periodically producing press releases and position statements to the press. In this way it will be possible to raise an intelligent debate and so begin to create an environment for change. Over time, an archive of press releases and position statements will be developed.

PDA "Insight" Newsletter

A regular newsletter, called INSIGHT, will be produced and distributed automatically at no cost to all PDA members. INSIGHT will contain details of all the latest developments, results of any lobbying campaigns, risk management issues, practice guidance and details of any emerging issues that may affect the individual pharmacist agenda.
