Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited a local pharmacy recently where he was welcomed by Sanjay Doegar, owner of Ruislip Manor Pharmacy, Middlesex.

Mr Doegar was very pleased to invite the Prime Minister, who was very happy to chat to the pharmacy team and have photos taken. During his visit, the Prime Minister noted that the Pharmacy had put up screens to help protect the staff and patients.

Sanjay spoke to the Prime Minister about how pharmacies had worked flat out throughout these difficult times to ensure that the best patient care could be provided. He also spoke to Mr Johnson about how flu vaccinations were available for patients in most pharmacies, and that the profession would work together to deliver any future Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available.

Mr Doegar said:

“Our profession deserves to be recognised for our role within the NHS and with a potential second-wave and a demanding winter ahead, it’s crucial that we get the support and funding we need.”

The Prime Minister ended his visit by thanking all the staff for their hard work during the Covid-19 crisis.
