Lord Bethell Thank You Letter to the Healthcare Distribution Sector

Dear HDA members,

Please see below letter from Lord Bethell, Minister of Innovation at DHSC, thanking all staff in the healthcare distribution sector for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

17 June 2020

Dear Martin,

Thank you to all staff in the healthcare distribution sector

I personally want to thank all staff in the healthcare distribution sector for their hard work during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the father of four young children, I lean on the pharmaceutical wholesale industry to provide solutions for the sniffles, cuts and scrapes of a busy home life, and I am grateful that the supplies of key family medicines and supplies has never wavered.

These are unprecedented times and I have been very impressed by the response from healthcare distributors and their staff during this very busy and challenging period for all of us. It was because of your efforts that hospitals have been able to continue to treat patients with severe Covid-19 symptoms and community pharmacies have been able to continue to supply patients with their medication in primary care.

Healthcare distribution staff have a vital role in our joint response to the COVID-19 pandemic and I can assure you that all Health Ministers are incredibly grateful for the work that you are doing.

Finally, I also want to thank the Healthcare Distribution Association for representing the sector and working with the Government and the NHS on the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you again for all your work and support.

 

From the Lord Bethell

Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Innovation (Lords)
