I am PROUD to be a pharmacist on the front line, working in an increasingly pressurised healthcare environment.
Workplace pressure impacts on all sectors. I see this every day as a community pharmacist. Pharmacies need to be run safely, yet safe staffing levels are a major concern.
Pharmacists need support.
No pharmacist should feel alone or be working alone. England needs a strategy to increase access to pharmacists. Patients must have access to face to face care. I’m already a passionate advocate for pharmacy in broadcast, print and social media.
If elected I’ll ensure that the RPS:
- Continues to be the voice for pharmacy.
- Campaigns for safer pharmacies.
- Stands up for the individual pharmacist.
- Widens patient access to pharmacists
A fresh voice for pharmacy. A voice for pharmacy, a voice for the individual- Thorrun Govind (@pharmthorrun)
Thorrun Govind is a community pharmacist working in England and is running for election to the RPS English pharmacy board.
Pharmacy in Practice has extended an open invite to publish their manifesto and their thoughts in the run up to the 2018 RPS board elections.
