PDA want members to tell us about the levels of abuse in pharmacy

Can you help us stop the abuse of pharmacists? 

Tue 7th April 2020 The PDA

Many PDA members are telling us that levels of abuse from patients and/or others in pharmacy are increasing in both frequency and seriousness. We have long campaigned on this issue, but it seems that in the COVID-19 crisis, in places it has become an everyday event.

We want to see a zero-tolerance approach to any abuse of our profession and to stop any abuse or attack in any pharmacy.

We’ve raised this with employers, police forces, the home office and the media and issued posters for you to display in your pharmacy. However, we need to do more and now urgently need data to support our campaign with an up to date analysis of the situation.

Please can you help our efforts by completing this short survey of just a few questions?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
