Avicenna chief: Second wave of COVID-19 demand on pharmacies is coming

There will be a second wave of unprecedented demand on community pharmacies as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Avicenna chair Salim Jetha.

Mr Jetha predicts there will be another surge of patients into pharmacies caused by the knock-on health effects of halting of all face-to-face tests in pharmacies and GP surgeries across the UK during March.

Listen to the podcast to hear more, as well as Mr Jetha’s concerns about the spiralling costs of delivering medicines, the possibility of pharmacy closures and dispensing at a loss.

You can listen to the podcast below. Alternatively, subscribe to C+D's podcasts on iTunes or by searching “Chemist+Druggist podcast” on your preferred Android podcast app.
