Dispensing doctors launch fightback
The Dispensing Doctors' Association has launched its action plan for responding to the proposals outlined in the Government's Pharmacy White Paper.
An impact assessment by the Department of Health warned that more than 700 dispensing practices located less than 1km from the nearest pharmacy would be forced to close under its plans.
GPs are being encouraged to engage with their local MP and regional press, attend LMC meetings and white paper listening events run by the DH. GPs can download and display the posters and other materials available on the DDA website at www.dispensingdoctor.org.
