The funding cuts, long working hours and inadequate staffing levels are major causes of workplace stress in community pharmacy, according to a new report from the charity Pharmacist Support.
The Royal Pharmaceutical Society recorded a deficit before interest and taxation of £1.209m for 2018, according to its annual financial report, published before the AGM on Wednesday (April 10). The organisation made a surplus of £272,000 in 2017. After incorporating movements on provisions, losses on investments, interest and the tax liability for the year, the final deficit was £1.637m compared to a surplus of £428,000 in 2017.
