Pharmacy Forward is the must attend one day national event for community pharmacy owners and their teams.

The third annual event is taking place on 12 May in Birmingham with the aim of giving community pharmacists a voice, the answers, and a clear pathway in this turbulent time. Confirmed topics include:


  • Managing shortages, Brexit and the stockpiling debate
  • Technological advances and obligations including practical lessons and updates on FMD
  • Decreasing workload and increasing revenue opportunities
  • Workforce and leadership


With revalidation, FMD, and changes to OTC prescribing on the horizon, against a backdrop of funding cuts, de-commissioning of services and workforce challenges, community pharmacy must adapt and react to a new landscape.

Seeking new ways to evolve and ensure you are reaching maximum potential is key. That is where Pharmacy Forward comes in. This event will ensure that you are prepared for impending change and have tools to survive the next 12 months. It will allow you to come together and learn from experts on the best ways to protect your income and your future as well as a chance to catch up with colleagues from across your region and the UK. We hope to give you the momentum to grow through this time of uncertainty, positioning community pharmacy as an indispensable part of your local health system.

Pharmacy Forward is specifically focused on community pharmacy and every part of your team should find workshops of value at the event. We hope to see you in May!
