See you at the CPC London in May!

Why we partner with the Clinical Pharmacy Congress

We’re pleased to announce our continued partnership with the Clinical Pharmacy Congress. For the fourth year running, the team at CPC has chosen us to be their nominated charity, recognising the importance of championing the profession’s charity and helping us to raise awareness of how we support our pharmacy family.

The CPC supports our work by offering us space and time within the congress to raise awareness of our free and confidential support services. The congress also supports our much-needed fundraising drive by donating £1 per UK-registered pharmacist that attends CPC 2024 to Pharmacist Support.

We’re very grateful to the organisers of CPC for this opportunity to raise much-needed funds. Like most charities across the country, we’ve experienced continued difficulties fundraising due to the pandemic and cost-of-living crisis. All funds raised go directly towards supporting our pharmacy family through our vital support services.

Danielle Hunt, our Chief Executive, says of the partnership: “We’re delighted to resume our valuable partnership with the Clinical Pharmacy Congress who share a joint aim of supporting our pharmacy family. Their ongoing commitment to championing our work is crucial to ensuring that individuals and organisations across the profession are aware of Pharmacist Support and the free and independent support services we offer.”

Laura Shapiro, Portfolio Director at the Clinical Pharmacy Congress says: “Partnering with Pharmacist Support means working with a charity that provides invaluable help and support to the sector and we are grateful for everything they do. We are excited to raise awareness and funds to support Pharmacist Support and share their incredible work.”

How we can support you at this year’s congress

Across the two days of the event, you’ll find us in various theatres discussing mental health and wellbeing in pharmacy. We’ll also be at our stand where you’ll be able to chat to us about how we can support you and your pharmacy team’s wellbeing, learn about our Embracing a Wellbeing Workplace Culture training course for pharmacy managers and leaders, and grab yourself the latest wellbeing pack on transforming workplace culture.
