We were at the Chemist and Druggist (C&D) conference held at the NEC in Birmingham on the 11th of October 2009 and we loved it. We recommend that you attend next year’s event. We definitely switched onto the topical discussions. The big picture is becoming even clearer!
The presentations by Sue Sharp (PSNC Chief Executive) and Jonathan Mason (NHS Clinical Director of Pharmacy) were very interesting. When Steve Poulton of Pfizer talked about how big Pharma can work in collaboration with Pharmacy, it was music to our ears. We didn’t realise Pfizer was formed from the collaboration between a Chemist and a Confectioner! How interesting. When Professor Joy Wingfield took to the stage, the whole hall was packed! Well, that is what Responsible Pharmacy regulation does to you!
Shame we couldn’t attend day 2 of the conference. But from what we saw, we will be attending next year…all of it! We hope you would too.
