The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the biggest challenges that the health service has faced, radically altering society and our attitudes to what is most important. But what about pharmacy?
We wanted to know aspects of the pandemic would you like to forget, and which would you like to retain. Is the pandemic a tragedy for pharmacy, or a bright new beginning?
So that’s why, for this year's writing competition, The Pharmaceutical Journal asked its readers, in 500 words or fewer, to share their views and visions of pharmacy in a post-pandemic world. And they didn't disappoint.
