As the NHS celebrated its 70th birthday on 5 July, president of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society Ash Soni championed the work of pharmacists and their teams and how this has evolved over the years.
“Pharmacists have played a vital role in providing NHS services since the very beginning. As science, technology and research has rapidly advanced, so has the role of the pharmacist,” he said. “Our services are becoming ever more integrated across all parts of the NHS. “The expectations of the public have changed, and they now look to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians for guidance on all aspects of their medicines, illnesses and lifestyle.” The National Pharmacy Association also joined in the celebrations by sharing the stories of pharmacy teams’ proudest moments and highlighting the essential work that local pharmacies do as part of the NHS front line.
