Save Our Pharmacies

key_pharma.png

The Government has decided that £170 million will be cut from pharmacies in 2016/17. This massive cut could lead to the closure of one in four pharmacies - that would mean eleven in Sutton.

I am incredibly concerned about these proposals which are nothing more than a backdoor health cut. When I met with local Pharmacists, they told me that the reasons for the changes have not been explained and the public will receive a worse service because of the cuts.

Pharmacies offer a huge range of services to take pressure off GPs and A&E departments -- closing them makes no sense.

Please sign our petition calling on the Government to stop these cuts:

I/we the undersigned call upon the Secretary of State for Health and the Government to stop cuts to pharmacy funding and support pharmacy services that save the NHS money and reduce the burden on GPs and A&E departments.
