charles blogBy Charles Willis, RPS Head of Public Affairs

In the run up to the general election this May, it’s important that pharmacy and the role of pharmacists are among the issues being discussed by the political parties.

Watch my video blog below to find out what the RPS is doing to promote the vital work of the pharmacy profession, and how you can help.

How you can help

You can help to raise the profile of the profession in the debates simply by talking to canvassers who come to your door. Ask them what they are going to do to ensure the role of pharmacists is better utilised in the healthcare system.
