About us

This website has been developed by the National Pharmacy Association, Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee and Royal Pharmaceutical Society.

We want the next UK Government to recognise that community pharmacy is a solution to many longstanding problems in the NHS. We want to ensure that the next Government commits to greater investment and support for community pharmacy in order to unlock the sector’s tremendous potential.

The NPA is the representative body of over 6,500 independent community pharmacies across the UK. The majority of our members are family owned, small to medium sized businesses. Independent pharmacies are a local lifeline and essential to the health and wellbeing of the nation. They are characterised by strong relationships with patients and the communities they serve. For more information please visit npa.co.uk and read our core beliefs.

We are recognised by the Secretary of State for Health as the body that represents NHS pharmacy contractors. We work closely with Local Pharmaceutical Committees to support their role as the local NHS representative organisations. Please visit psnc.org.uk for more information.
