Pharmacy Update - November 2020
An update on everything new within the Pharmacy sector.
The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in disruption to education and training during spring and summer 2020. Public health restrictions are likely to be in place during 2020/21, and further disruption may occur on a localised basis.
