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)
