PSNC promotes and supports the interests of all NHS community pharmacies in England. We are recognised by the Secretary of State for Health as the body that represents NHS pharmacy contractors. We work closely with Local Pharmaceutical Committees (LPCs) to support their role as the local NHS representative organisations.
Our goal is to develop the NHS community pharmacy service, to enable community pharmacies to offer an increased range of high quality and fully funded services that meet the needs of their local communities and provide value and good health outcomes for the NHS and the public.
We work with NHS England and other NHS bodies, and with the Department of Health, to promote opportunities for the development of community pharmacy services, and negotiate the contractual terms for the provision of NHS community pharmacy services.
The British In Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA) is the national trade association for manufacturers and suppliers of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests, currently representing over 150 members from the IVD industry, ranging in size from British start-up companies to UK subsidiaries of multinational corporations. IVD tests are a vital tool in the detection and identification of a wide range of pathogens responsible for a variety of infectious diseases, and are essential in guiding the appropriate treatment for patients. There is widespread recognition that in vitro diagnostics have a crucial role to play in combatting AMR, as recognised most recently in the final report of the Review on AMR.
