Save our pharmacies


The Tory government have announced that they are pushing ahead with huge cuts to community pharmacy budgets, meaning that pharmacies will face a 12% cut on current funding levels for the rest of this financial year, and a 7.4% cut on current levels the year after.

Research produced by the House of Commons Library shows that up to 20 pharmacies across Lambeth are under threat as a result of these funding cuts and we are very concerned about the damaging impact there could be on our local communities as a result.

In Lambeth we are clear that these funding cuts pose a severe threat to our local community health services. Please support our campaign opposing these cuts to the community pharmacies that residents across Lambeth rely on by signing our petition calling on the government to reconsider.

At the age of 81 recently suffered from a heavy cold which rapidly turned into a chest infection. Needing medication to help be through the weekend before I was able to acquire antibiotics from my GP the following week, I was lucky enough to find what I needed from a pharmacy just a short distance from the sheltered housing where I live in in Kennington Road. If there hadn’t been one so close by I would not have felt well enough to venture any further, particularly in very cold weather.

The community pharmacy is vital when you’re feeling I’ll. Used mine today and if it hadn’t been there the nearest one would have been a bus ride away.
