Public consultation on pharmaceutical needs assessment

We have assessed the needs of pharmaceutical services for the local population, now and in the coming years. This consultation, with your feedback, aims to review the current services and identify any gaps or improvements that need to be made. Feedback from this consultation and report will be used to help the NHS decide on applications for new pharmacies, and applications for changes at existing pharmacies.

The current report has been produced by looking at the health needs of the population, the current pharmacy network and its services and public views on current services. It has drawn on research material and has been advised by a stakeholder group that looked at different aspects of pharmacy services.

We invite you to take this opportunity to give us your views on this research and the conclusions and recommendations drawn from it.

All information you provide will be treated in strict confidence and will not be used to identify you personally. The information you give us will only be used for the purpose of this consultation and will not be passed to anyone else. The analysis is done on an anonymous basis under the guidelines of the Data Protection Act.

The answers you provide for this consultation will help shape the final pharmaceutical needs assessment for Tower Hamlets which will be completed and published by March 31, 2015. Your participation should take no longer than 10 minutes.

Please give us your views by filling in our survey by March 30, 2015.
