Would retail pharmacy be stronger in the EU?

How would a vote to leave the European Union be likely to affect community pharmacy? With the referendum vote later this week, pharmacy’s Claire Ward and Sigma Pharmaceutical’s Bhavin Shah look at the implications from a “remain” perspective. As pharmacy grapples with the prospect of a six per cent budget cut, few are likely to have been thinking too hard about the referendum on EU membership. However, a cut of £170 million to the pharmacy budget may be just the start of closures, job losses and reduced pay in community pharmacy. A vote to leave the European Union could deliver an even greater blow to independent pharmacy – and the wider healthcare sector – that few contractors are even discussing, let alone planning for.
