Consolidations and mergers webinar now on-demand

Community pharmacy contractors can now access a recording of PSNC’s recent webinar on the regulations around consolidations and mergers.

Over 250 people registered for yesterday’s (5th March) webinar to support community pharmacy contractors who may be considering consolidating or merging two or more pharmacies or pharmacy businesses.During the 60-minute webinar, Gordon Hockey, PSNC Director of Operations and Support, discussed:

  • Mergers and voluntary closures;
  • Consolidations under Regulation 26A – the procedure, the benefits and its limitations; and
  • No significant change relocations (Regulation 24) that can be viewed as mergers.

Attendees unanimously described it as good at describing how the procedures around consolidations work and explaining the issues that may arise, with 87% saying they would recommend it to others. The event also proved popular amongst LPC officers and employees who often support contractors with pharmacy applications.
