Pharmacy Benevolent Fund

The Pharmacy Benevolent Fund supports those who have been associated with pharmacy and who are now in need of assistance. The funds are put to a wide variety of uses to improve the basic quality of life of those in need.

Lack of provision for the inevitable event of retirement, or the unexpected events of being unable to work due to serious illness or premature death of a working spouse, are the primary reasons people need assistance from the Benevolent Fund.

While the typical beneficiary may be an elderly widow of a pharmacist living alone, we are seeing an alarming increase in younger beneficiaries, many with complex needs.

It is important to remember that the Benevolent Fund considers cases not alone from Pharmacists and their families, but also those from the Healthcare Industry.

If you or someone you know has been affected by any of the issues mentioned above or you simply want more information please contact the President of the Benevolent Fund, Rachel Gubbins at rachel@castletroypharmacy.ie .
