During the pandemic, community pharmacy teams across the country have showcased just how valuable a career in community pharmacy really is.
At the height of the pandemic many people became really reliant on community pharmacies for medicines, advice, support and services.
Pharmacy teams stepped up to support their patients and support the national effort to limit the impact of coronavirus and to keep people well.
Not only did community pharmacy teams play a crucial role in supporting patients, but they have also played a vital role in the national rollout of the covid-19 vaccination.
The quote below comes from the #PharmacyHeroes campaign.
“I have been a pharmacist for 38 years and I can say the day when my pharmacy became one of the very first in the country to administer the COVID-19 vaccine was the biggest day of my career.”
“Everyone here is part of something special. We’re proud and honoured to be involved in this national effort to help protect the population of the country and hopefully return us all to some form of normality.”Pharmacist, North West England
