On Thursday 1st April MP Paul Goggins visited us at Thackers Pharmacy. We invited him to show the work we have done and to hear our "support your local pharmacy campaign" after coming under threat by the opening of the Baguley Tesco 100 hour Pharmacy.
We discussed the current 100 hour exemption threat and how this is a real threat to Independent Pharmacies. Also discussed was the flu pandemic and our contribution being an antiviral collection point, the services which our pharmacy provides. It was a great opportunity to provide evidence for the government to show how accessible community pharmacies are for long term health conditions, smoking cessation, weight management and many other health conditions.
