Title:Have your say to help shape Pharmacy services in Doncaster
ID & Publication:20140711018 ~

People in Doncaster are being encouraged to have their say on an important part of the borough's health services.

Doncaster Council is encouraging residents to respond to a consultation which will help inform the planning of local pharmacy services.

The Doncaster Health and Wellbeing Board consultation is asking for people’s views on things like pharmacy location and opening hours, what they do well, and if they provide the right sort of services.

The consultation, which will run until Monday 4 August, will be used to help inform Doncaster's Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment which will be instrumental in informing the planning and managing of pharmacies across the borough.

Dr Rupert Suckling, Assistant Director of Public Health, Doncaster Council, said: ‘Doncaster Health and Wellbeing Board is giving people the opportunity to have their voice heard on pharmacies.

‘Your views matter and by sharing what you think about pharmacies you will help inform future planning of local services.’

Residents and organisations can give their views by completing the questionnaire online at

Alternatively, they can ask for a paper copy to be sent to them, by contacting Samantha Blakeley on 01302 862145

People's views will help shape the draft revised Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment which will then be subject to further consultation.

It is due to be completed by 1st April 2015. The NHS will use it to look at how best to buy the services people in Doncaster need from their pharmacies. It will also help the NHS to see if there are any gaps in services and look at future plans.
