HDA COVID-19 Thank You Note

Dear HDA Members,

On behalf of the Healthcare Distribution Association, we would like to thank all our members for your continuing dedicated efforts and hard work through these challenging and unprecedented times.  Now more than ever, your work is crucial to the health of millions of UK citizens up and down  the country, with hospitals, community pharmacies and dispensing doctors relying on wholesalers to provide vital medicines.  This critical role has been recognised across Government, and by others in the medicines supply chain.   You all have been classified as Key Workers in our joint fight against Covid-19; for this we say ‘Thank You’.

The safety of wholesaling and distribution colleagues is one of our top priorities.  With this aim, the HDA is working closely with the UK Government and our members, to ensure that distribution staff’s day-to-day work is as safe and secure as possible.  As always, our mission remains to maintain the efficiency of our supply chain and get medicines to those who need it the most at the right time.

The HDA is very proud of the work you are doing to support the country’s healthcare system at such a critical time.  We hope our members, and all respective families are keeping well.

Once again, on behalf of all at the Healthcare Distribution Association, we thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Martin Sawer, Executive Director and Jeremy Main, Chair
