3,000 pharmacy closures could be 'disaster' for GPs


They are hoping to close pharmacies by stealth I.e. Reducing payments until the small can't survive. I can't see them keeping payments at a level where a rural dispensary would be an attractive option. I imagine that they could have their eyes on rural dispensaries too as they'll feel that remote pharmacies can do their job even easier as they don't offer other services.
