Welcome to Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire

We represent over 570 pharmacies including single handed independent pharmacies and those owned by bigger chains. Pharmacies in our area employ in the region of 5000 staff.

The NHS and local government consult Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire on all matters relating to the NHS and public health work undertaken by community pharmacy in West Yorkshire. We are also responsible for advancing the enhanced role of community pharmacy to ensure it plays an active part in promoting health and wellbeing across West Yorkshire.

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire is committed to developing the workforce in our local pharmacies to ensure the whole team have the skills to support people who are unwell and prevent ill health through public health services.

The work of Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire is not for profit and is guided by our Strategy.

We work hard to represent and promote community pharmacy to the NHS and local government and to support community pharmacy teams to deliver high quality health services. We are always pleased to receive comments and suggestions from pharmacy teams so feel free to contact us.
