Official publications


The leading provider of news, opinion, CPD, education and product knowledge for pharmacists in both their professional and clinical roles. Written specifically for the community pharmacy sector Pharmacy magazine supports pharmacists’ lifelong learning and continuing professional development (CPD), develops pharmacists’ practice in a way that positively influences patient outcomes and progresses pharmacists’ professional healthcare role and their clinical skills.



Independent Community Pharmacist is the only magazine targeted exclusively at independent pharmacists, ensuring your message is clearly targeted at those most able to respond. Independent pharmacists are unique, they may operate one retail outlet, or they may operate several. But one thing remains the same: they are in charge of their own pharmacies and are independent decision makers. Independent Community Pharmacist is the only magazine targeted exclusively at this sector.
