Views On Pharmacy Services
Views sought on pharmacy services
Solihull Council is currently reviewing pharmacy (chemist) services in the borough to make sure they meet people’s needs.
People who live and work in Solihull are being asked to complete a short survey on what they think of local pharmacy services.
The survey asks about services such as:
• getting advice about medicines
• Prescription Delivery Service
• support to lead healthier lifestyles
• getting advice about other services
The survey will help the Council to plan and improve the health services that pharmacies offer in the future. Surveys are also being carried out with pharmacists and GPs.
An online survey is available at www.solihull.gov.uk/consultation and hard copies can also be found in pharmacies, libraries and GP surgeries.
The consultation closes on Friday 6 October 2017.
Notes to Editor:
The information collected will be used to inform the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). This is a report published by the Health and Wellbeing Board every three years. The PNA will look at where pharmacies are needed in the borough and what services they should provide now and in the future. This information will be used to help understand where services are performing well and where improvements are needed.
