Pharmacy teams are key frontline workers during the Covid-19 pandemic. They are often forgotten and deserve full recognition for their contribution, bravery and hard work during the crisis. Pharmacies have continued to have their doors open to members of the public, and have truly shown their dedication, resilience and professionalism during these unprecedented times.

We would like to thank each and every member of the pharmacy team, and here we have some messages of encouragement and gratitude for you.

Thank you to our #pharmacyheroes
