Pharmacy’s must-read stories


For our last issue of the year, we reveal what has caught our readers attention in 2020

Interestingly, almost all of the top 20 are stories from the second half of the year. Some relate to COVID, but not all that many.

Perennial reader favourite topic Chemist Warehouse features in about 5 of the list. Other recurring items are the 7CPA, e-prescriptions (congratulations to pharmacist Ben Wilkins, who penned the number one story as a column on this topic) and issues with GPs.
