Community pharmacies across Northern Ireland regularly engage in activities which support and improve the health needs of the local population. With their clinical expertise, accessibility and local knowledge, a community pharmacy team is a valuable and essential asset to the local community.
Awareness raising days are great opportunities to highlight this work and if your pharmacy is involved in an awareness event or an initiative– we would love to hear from you!
