The IPU actively demonstrates the valuable contribution that community pharmacists make within the Irish healthcare system. Raising the profile of the profession, we engage in public relations, consumer advertising and lobbying of politicians and other stakeholders. We commission market research every year to monitor public attitudes to pharmacy services. We work with Government, industry and patient support groups aiming to ensure that your expertise is fully utilised so you can deliver more and much needed services to patients.
