BPA launches “one number” advice line
To make it easier for our members to get help and advice we have introduced a new “one number” contact system.
Disputes and disciplinaries can be a distressing time. You can feel alone; even isolated. BPA took so much time not only providing real and practical advice, but the support that came along with it was invaluable. It lifted my mood and I felt like I was the only case they were handling. They are genuinely here to help. Thank you BPA.
The help and support I was given by the BPA was excellent.
I would highly recommend all Boots pharmacists join the BPA.
Once again many thanks to BPA for great support. My matter was handled with care and confidence. The support and advice was brilliant and led to no official meetings being held. If you are not a member yet do not hesitate and JOIN BPA NOW!
As a loyal pharmacist working for the company for many years ,attending a disciplinary hearing can be an extremely worrying and daunting . In my case, it was an unintentional breach of security rules which made me feel isolated from my colleagues and managers. From the moment I contacted the BPA they were incredibly involved in my case, providing reassurance, guidance, representation and better than anything someone to talk to in confidence. I am proud to be a member.
