This comes just months after PDAU Regional Committee Chair, Richard Evans was invited to present to a meeting of Police Commissioners and Chief Constables in Wales on the topic. This resulted in the police progressing support for the campaign.

This is another great example of how the PDA campaign is being supported in Wales after the PDA’s Safer Pharmacies Charter was circulated, along with the PDA’s Violence in Pharmacy policy and resource pack, as part of a joint campaign by the PDA and Community Pharmacy Wales (CPW) in 2018.
