Building Community-Pharmacy Partnership funding recommenced

When the pandemic hit in March 2020, the BCPP grant programme was paused as the role for CDHN quickly became clear and we developed the Community Support for Community Pharmacy Scheme. The organisation had strong relationships with communities and Community Pharmacies through the BCPP programme and the success of that Scheme is testament of that. A year on, we wish to take this opportunity to thank the 122 community/voluntary organisations who registered to support 252 Community Pharmacies and make 64,000 deliveries by the end of August 2020.

We reopened BCPP funding in November 2020 and, since then, we have received a high number of applications for both levels of funding.  We are delighted to announce that funding has been approved for seven successful applicants in this round of Building the Community-Pharmacy Partnership (BCPP) Level 1 funding. The groups to benefit from £2,500 each of funding are as follows:

  • Cycul and Paul Donaghy Pharmacy, Dungannon
  • Maghera Cross Community Link and Harkin’s Pharmacy, Maghera
  • Meigh Community Association and Meigh Pharmacy, Newry (South Armagh)
  • St Enda’s GAA and Bradley’s Pharmacy, Omagh
  • Shields Pharmacy and Robert Emmett GAC, Maghera
  • St Oliver Plunkett Youth Club and Luke Murphy Pharmacy, Crossmaglen
  • Cuan Mhuire and The Medical Hall, Newry

Kathy Martin, Strategic Impact Manager, said ‘We were delighted to relaunch the BCPP programme and excited to see new partnerships established that are a direct result of the pharmacy delivery scheme. We recognise Community Pharmacy remains under increased pressure due to the pandemic and we acknowledge their commitment as they continue to value community engagement.’
