Pharmacy Pressures Survey

Thank you to those that took part in the Pharmacy Pressures Survey.  CPE has released their first national report, which sets out the findings with regard to medicines supply.  This highlights the fact that medicines supply, drug shortages and market instability are now the worst that pharmacies have ever seen, and these issues have become the highest point of concern for many across the sector.

Pharmacies are reporting that medicine supply issues are worse than this time last year, with 99% of pharmacy team staff encountering them at least weekly, and 72% now facing multiple issues a day. Concerningly, 97% of pharmacy team members reported patient frustration and 84% say they have experienced aggression from patients because of medicine supply issues.
