CPE asks for ‘inputs’ on winter pressure from independents and non-CCA

Community Pharmacy England (CPE) is seeking views from all community pharmacy owners about the pressures faced this autumn season.

A survey has been launched as the “November Pre-Committee Opinion Poll” until 6 November to seek views from independents and non-Company Chemists’ Association (CCA)

The results of the poll will be sent to the head offices of CCA multiples next week for discussion at the November Committee Meeting.

CPE confirmed: “The results of these polls and the outcomes of the meeting will be reported back to the sector afterwards.

They said that the survey “will be used to feed into our ongoing work to press for an uplift to core funding by enhancing our evidence base of what pharmacy owners
are experiencing.”
