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 double figures here in Islington. Questions have been raised on the long term future of our local pharmacies at Highbury Barn, on Blackstock Road, Highbury Corner and on Green Lanes. Please sign our petition calling upon the Government to stop these cuts.
I/we the undersigned call upon the Secretary of State for Health and the Government to stop proposed cuts to pharmacy funding and support pharmacy services that save the NHS money and reduce the burden on GPs and A&E departments.
