The whole of the NHS has been affected since the Health and Social Care Bill was announced back in January 2011. Whilst there is still more to be clarified, the fact appears that GPs (and consortia) are likely to be at the centre of much of this change. It is therefore vital that Pharmacies are at their side to ensure that they are seen as part of this ‘new world’ NHS.
This provides many opportunities for pharmacies as they offer public health services to hundreds of thousands of customers each year – but this also adds further pressure in an increasingly competitive market.
Our team of specialist pharmacy solicitors have worked with a large number of pharmacy businesses in the Solent region and beyond. Our wide ranging experience enables us to understand the issues affecting pharmacy businesses and to deliver focused, practical legal advice – on time and to budget.
