LPC Rebrand

New name, new look

Co Durham and Darlington Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) has a new name and a brand-new look.

At a Special General Meeting on 30 September 2021 our pharmacies voted to amend our official title to “County Durham Local Pharmaceutical Committee” but also to adopt a name by which we will be commonly known. With effect from 10 February, the committee will be recognised as Community Pharmacy County Durham (CPCD). It’s felt that this title better explains to external stakeholders the sector that we represent. Also, a driver for this change was to bring all our pharmacies, those in Durham and Darlington, under one umbrella; a move that is more inclusive for all our pharmacies.

At the same time, CPCD is launching this new website (https://cpnec.org.uk), new social media accounts: @CPCoDurham and a rebrand, you’ll notice our new logo on this website.

CPCD would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to Mr Peter Grundy, M Whitfield Ltd, a friend of the committee and a previous member. For many years, Peter managed the LPC communications, including populating the LPC website, producing newsletters and the Annual Reports. Members are very grateful to Peter for all the support he has provided.
