Welcome to

Pharmacy in Practice

At Pharmacy in Practice we have gone back to our editorial roots. We have slowed things down and will publish insight and opinions on the UK pharmacy scene.


The Pharmacy in Practice podcast includes conversations with a wide range of pharmacy-related folk. We love to add context and move beyond the headline.


We publish insightful articles written by industry experts. Occasionally we will run a series when we delve into a particular topic and explore all sides of the issue.


The inaugural Scottish Pharmacy in Practice Multi-sector in-person conference and research poster event will take place on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2024.

This meeting is intended for Healthcare Professionals in Great Britain only. This meeting is sponsored with financial contribution from Pfizer Ltd. Pfizer promotional content will be shared in a section of this meeting. All other content had no input from Pfizer Ltd. Prescribing information and adverse event reporting information for the promotional product mentioned will be available at the meeting.
