Pharmacy Voice

Pharmacy Voice, officially launched on 16 February 2011, is formed by the CCA, the National Pharmacy Association, and the Association of Independent Multiple Pharmacies. Pharmacy Voice represents community pharmacy owners.

The principal aim of Pharmacy Voice is to enable community pharmacy to fulfil its potential and play an expanded role as a healthcare provider of choice in the new NHS, offering unrivalled accessibility, value and quality for patients and driving forward the medicines optimisation, public health and long term conditions agendas. Pharmacy Voice creates a stronger unified voice for community pharmacy to influence the policy and commissioning agendas for its members.

The three trade associations continue their usual work (e.g. corporate pharmacy representation for the CCA). The immediate work programme of Pharmacy Voice includes: media work to engage members, the public and stakeholders in activities to demonstrate the power of community pharmacy. Thought leadership: on key strategic issues, including Government policy, legislation and regulation, and particularly NHS commissioning in the light of the Five Year Forward View, and improving patient safety across the sector.
