Regular news bulletins for contractors


Our internal communications goal is to make it easy for NHS community pharmacy contractors in Surrey and Sussex to access the local information that helps them do the job they love.

Our regular news bulletins are targeted towards an internal community pharmacy audience. They are presented as:

  • a BLUE bulletin, focussing only on LPC news. Usually every two weeks.
  • a GREEN bulletin, where we round-up system news and news from partners, including their newsletters. Usually every two weeks
  • an ad-hoc BLACK bulletin with practical local support, LPC news and updates, insight  and current advice to help contractors across Surrey and Sussex manage their way through the Coronavirus pandemic.

After good feedback and insight from community pharmacy colleagues we have decided to send our BLUE and GREEN bulletins fortnightly, although this may not always be possible if we are sending BLACK support bulletins too.

See distribution schedule and past-copies below.

NOTE: before March 2021 our news bulletins were designed and distributed as html templates on Outlook. They are available here in .pdf format, with some reduction in quality and layout.
