The Aim of the UK’s National Pharmacy Association

NPA, a non-profit organization, realizes the importance of the local pharmacies to its citizens. So what are its primary goals? 

  • NPA aims to help independent pharmacies succeed by providing a variety of resources and services, including legal advice, training, and business support. They also advocate for fair funding and policies that support independent pharmacies.
  • The NPA advocates for a broader range of services to be provided by community pharmacies, such as minor illnesses consultations and vaccination programs. The waiting list for GPs is quite long, and people should have access to healthcare without having to wait on lengthy lists.  They believe that pharmacies play an important role in reducing pressure on the NHS and making healthcare more accessible to the general public.
  • The NPA promotes the safe and effective use of medicines by ensuring that pharmacists have access to the most up-to-date information and training in order to provide patients with accurate and reliable medication advice.

Renowned UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who began his career at his mother’s pharmacy, also strongly supports the NPA and recognizes the critical role that local pharmacies play. Drawing on his firsthand knowledge of the essential contributions made by these pharmacies to the wellness of the UK population, Sunak highlights the significance of providing individuals with easy access to healthcare services at local pharmacies, eventually relieving the strain on GP waiting lists.

Why Did MCAN Health Choose to Sponsor NPA?

At MCAN Health, we recognize the importance of accessible, high-quality healthcare not only in Turkey, but around the world. That is why we are more than happy to declare our sponsorship of the National Pharmacy Association (NPA) in the UK. MCAN Health’s founder Gulsultan Dogan stated that ‘’When we got the invitation letter, we were ready to extend our support. As a long-time healthcare professional, I firmly believe local pharmacies hold a significant role in improving the health and wellness of the citizens. Access to healthcare is not a privilege, it’s a human right and no one should endure long waiting lists.’’

The NPA’s commitment to enhancing local community pharmacies and advocating for expanded patient care services resonated perfectly with MCAN Health’s core values. We believe that independent pharmacies are critical pillars of healthcare, providing personalized care and valuable expertise in communities. By supporting the NPA, we hope to contribute to a stronger, more accessible healthcare system in the UK, which mirrors our own mission of providing exceptional, affordable care in Turkey.

We are excited to see what the future holds as we collaborate with the NPA to empower pharmacies and patients in the UK and beyond! You can also check our Press Release regarding our sponsorship.
