Local Pharmacies Take Government to Court!


During the course of last year I campaigned to save Local Pharmacies as the Government was going to withdraw their funding,  and I warned that this loss of funding would close Local Pharmacies here and in Wolverhampton and further afield.

I felt so strongly about it that I placed a resolution in City Council. The Local Conservatives did not support the resolution, and they were quick to suggest that it was a message that would not happen.

Today I have received the following letter from the National Pharmacy Association who tell me that our local petitions joined with the National petitions became part of the two million petitioners/individuals who all wanted the Government to halt these proposals.

Ministers didn’t listen. Now the Pharmacies are going to take out a Judicial Review . This will be heard in the High Court next week.

I want Wednesfield residents to know that your three Wednesfield North Councillors, (Mary,Rita and Phil) support the campaign to have the Governments decision placed before the Courts in a Judicial Review .

Here is the letter from the National Pharmacy Association.

Please if you support what we are doing like and share, or retweet,  the information with all your family and friends….
