The Future of the UK Pharmacy

A recent survey by KPMG found that 49% of UK consumers take charge and actively monitor their own health, meaning there are significant opportunities for pharmacies to become the health and wellbeing partner of choice. Paul Martin, Head of Retail at KPMG will outline key results from the survey and highlight the retail opportunities for UK pharmacies to support consumers, patients and carers.
