UCA announces merger with CPNI

UCA is delighted to confirm that the UCA/CPNI merger has been agreed creating a new company, UCA-NI Ltd, with effect from 10th May. Over the next three years a new body will evolve to improve representation and more fully articulate the needs and aspirations of all contractors and community pharmacy teams across Northern Ireland.


Former UCA Trustee and incoming UCA-NI Board member, Dr Terry Maguire explained that the creation of UCA-NI Ltd will carry forward the remit of the Ulster Chemists' Association. "In addition, the CPNI board will expand to accomodate the four former UCA Executive members who will make a strong and constructive contribution to the work of the CPNI board.  


"UCA-NI Ltd will develop a strategy to support community pharmacies currently facing many challenges. "It is our sincere hope that this merger and the synergies it will create between UCA and CPNI, will bring significant benefit to all."
