We have been looking at chemist services in the city and have written a document about our findings and some recommendations. You may have previously taken part in our survey asking how you use local chemists.
Our document is called the draft pharmaceutical needs assessment and looks at the provision of chemist services across Stoke-on-Trent and if these services meet the current and future needs of the city. We have identified where there may be gaps and suggested how these could be improved.
The document will be used to help to make decisions about applications for new pharmacies or changes to existing services. We will also use it to help us to decide which services pharmacies should provide to help meet local health needs.
We would like to know what you think about the document and what you think about the services offered by pharmacies in general across the city.
This survey will be available until December 17 and the results will be used in a final version of our document.
