COVID19: Professional Guidance

There is lots of guidance available to support the profession during the Covid-19 outbreak. We have pulled key links together here to support our pharmacy family to find the information they need.

Public health guidance

NHS

The NHS has issued guidance that can help pharmacists during the Covid 19 outbreak.

Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS)

The RPS has put together a comprehensive package of information covering all areas of concern to pharmacists during the outbreak. This includes guidance on action plans, contingency plans and FAQs. This information is freely available to all – it is not members only content. Access the RPS information here.

The PSNC has a range of information including public health advice posters and advice about when to wear personal protection equipment (PPE). You can access their information here.
