Community pharmacists are the front door to the health service.
In every corner of Ireland, whilst the Covid-19 pandemic closed GP surgeries and hospital capacity overflowed, pharmacists stepped up.
Pharmacy doors remained firmly open during an unprecedented challenging time. Indeed, many patients turned to their community pharmacist for consultations for more serious conditions which are usually dealt with by GPs.
Irish Pharmacy News is delighted to announce that the search is on to find The People’s Pharmacist for 2021, in association with Panadol; giving the Irish public the opportunity to nominate and vote for, their local pharmacist who has gone above and beyond.
