Did you know? Essential small pharmacies losing funding

The essential small pharmacy (ESP) scheme ended on 31 March,which provided modest support for pharmacies serving isolated communities.

No, I didn’t know it existed either, nor that it was ending.

I would be glad to hear of any actual cases in Cambridgeshire and West Norfolk where this might lead to a loss of a pharmacy, especially in rural and remote areas. My fear, of course, is that once again it is these and especially their vulnerable members that are paying the price of government policy.

  1. Waterbeach Pharacy is certainly campaigning regarding this and may be facing, at least, relocation. Perhaps some other correspondent may know more.
    Thanking you for raising this issue.
