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.
