#SaveOurPharmacies Campaign: NPA calls second Day of Action in support of cross-sector

A second day of action has been announced by the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) to support the cross-sector #SaveOurPharmacies campaign.

This campaign aims to bring attention to the severe financial challenges facing community pharmacies due to ongoing cuts.

Scheduled for September 19, the day of action coincides with the political party conference season, aiming to emphasise the urgent need for government
intervention to ensure continued patient access to pharmacies.

The NPA’s initiative follows the successful One Day to #SaveOurPharmacies event in June.

Approximately 6,000 pharmacies participated by dimming their lights, wearing black, and engaging on social media to spotlight the issues facing the sector.
