Time left for Cumbria to have say on local pharmacies

THE opportunity for people to have a say on local pharmacies in Cumbria will end soon.

Cumbria’s Health and Wellbeing Board is reminding people they still have time to share their the views on the provision of pharmacy services in Cumbria before the consultation ends on 30 May.

The Board is asking the public for their views in order to help develop a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments (PNA) for their area.

Previously, NHS primary care trusts carried out these routine assessments which act as a guide for people wishing to open new pharmacies or dispensaries in Cumbria, or if existing pharmacies wish to expand. The last PNA was carried out in Cumbria in 2011.

The county’s Health and Wellbeing Board are also keen for pharmacies and dispensing GP practices to share their views. The consultation runs until 30 May and views can be shared at: www.haveyoursay.org.uk

The Board will then consider all the responses and publish a draft PNA later in the year for a formal 60 day consultation.
