Covid-19 has accelerated decision making in the NHS. Pharmacy can't afford to delay its own

Resilient. Proud. Magnificent

As the country was ordered to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives, and GPs moved to entry by remote triage, Rob Darracott asked a dozen pharmacists to log their Covid-19 experiences in a series of emails and calls. This is their story of five weeks in community pharmacy.

This review matters...

...and this is why. The Editor's view

There's a great job going in West London...

Who writes the script?

Time for a real change

Do people with an iPhone and a cold sore deserve instant access to a GP?

An hour with Keith Ridge: takeaways

Editor Rob Darracott's takeaways from his conversation with NHS England's chief pharmaceutical officer

Too soon, Lord Sugar?

Apprenticeships. A dastardly plot, or a different way of squaring a tricky circle? Outrage justified, or more detail needed?

PSNC has put support for LPCs at the heart of its strategy for 2019. I hope it’s not too late.
