Consumer research conducted by Opinion Matters on behalf of Numark, via a poll of 2,023 UK adults, November 2020. 83 per cent call-out community pharmacies as going above and beyond in 2020. Pharmacies are praised for staying open (56 per cent), putting their health on the line to serve so many different people coming through their doors (47 per cent) and continually offering medical advice where required (43 per cent).  Half of the UK cite convenience and ease as the most valued attributes of local pharmacy, with over a third (35 per cent) valuing the face-to-face care they receive when in-branch. 81 per cent acknowledge a pharmacy is essential for every high street and village community, with notably two thirds of 16-24-year olds, agreeing and more than three fifths (62 per cent) believe pharmacies help make up the heart of UK communities.
