Pharmacy Vision: last chance to submit views via consultation survey


Community pharmacy contractors are reminded that the deadline to complete the initial consultation survey on the vision for community pharmacy is this Friday (9th December) at 11.59pm.

This open consultation is the first opportunity for individuals and organisations to share their thoughts on the future direction for community pharmacy with Nuffield Trust and The King’s Fund, as part of PSNC’s vision project.

The short survey allows for free-text answers to five questions on topics such as:

  • Future policy goals;
  • Why previous reviews and policies may not have fully achieved their objectives;
  • Design principles that should underpin the service offer made by community pharmacy; and
  • Blocks and enablers for change.

We would like to thank all contractors who have already taken the time to complete the survey during what we know is an extremely busy and highly pressurised period. Any contractors who would prefer not to submit a written consultation response to input into this stage of the vision work are invited to join one of PSNC’s online engagement events in January 2023. Registration for these events will open shortly.

We encourage anyone who wants to have their say on the future of community pharmacy to take part. The responses to the survey, and a summary of the engagement events, will be shared with Nuffield Trust and The King’s Fund – in anonymised form – to help inform their thinking as they develop the new vision and strategic options for community pharmacy.

The consultation survey and engagements events are happening in addition to an extensive programme of research, interviews and initial meetings of the vision Steering Group, Advisory Panel, and Working Groups, all of which have contractors, LPCs and other representatives of the sector at their heart.
