Support the Charter

Pharmacists - Add your voice to the campaign for Safer Pharmacies.

What Pharmacists are saying about the Charter:

“The charter provides a fantastic framework which should underpin the operations of every pharmacy”

“For too long we have had low staffing levels putting patients and pharmacists at risk. This must change.”

“I think the Safer Pharmacies Charter is very sensible, offers practical steps to maintaining and improving patient safety and pharmacist wellbeing, and is worth supporting.”

“Implementation of the 7 key commitments in the charter is an important step which pharmacy owners and employers can take to help ensure that the care provided to patients in their pharmacies is as safe as possible.”

“We need these standards to be in place, not only for our pharmacist colleagues but for our patients who rely upon us to supply medication to them safely and effectively.”

“This is exactly what the profession needs. Sign up and keep patients safer. Every employer should sign up to this and if not explain why not.”

We’d like all pharmacists to support this charter and to encourage their employers to implement the commitments.  Please tell us your details below to add your voice to those that want to see all pharmacies meet these standards.

You might also want to download the Charter and provide it to any employer for whom you work as a Pharmacist.
