Presentation of workplan to improve pharmacy representation


Community pharmacy contractors are strongly encouraged to attend an upcoming event to hear about ongoing work to improve the services provided by PSNC and the LPCs.

Following on from an independent review looking at the roles of PSNC and LPCs last year, the Pharmacy Representation Review Steering Group (RSG) has appointed programme management advisors (The Berkeley Partnership) to look at how to make improvements happen. The RSG and team from Berkeley will share their final programme plan with the sector at a webinar on Monday 14th June, between 7.30-8.45pm.

The online event will describe the journey needed to transform pharmacy representation so that PSNC and LPCs can collectively better hear and represent the voice of contractors in the future. This will include drafting options for new models for representation, considering how funding will work, determining the protocol for holding a contractor votes on proposed changes, and engaging with the sector throughout the process.

During the webinar, contractors will hear:

  • Key principles for how the transformation programme will be run and how decisions will be governed;
  • How the RSG will engage with key stakeholder groups from both within and outside the pharmacy sector;
  • The final high-level plan and timeline of activities through to 2022; and
  • When the RSG will be seeking input from stakeholders.

PSNC recommends that contractors, LPCs, trade bodies, stakeholders and the pharmacy press join this event to hear about what to expect from the RSG in the coming months.
