Patient Survey for Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment
There are a number of community pharmacies (sometimes called chemists) in your council area and they may all be very different. Pharmacies can be found in shopping centres, local high streets, inside supermarkets or based within local health centres, but they are all NHS pharmacies.
Local Health and Wellbeing boards in Middlesbrough & Redcar and Cleveland are preparing new reports on pharmacy services called 'Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments'. This looks at what local people might need from these services, what is already available and suggests improvements that might be made now or in the near future.
We need your views
It is very important for us to understand patient experience and public views of pharmacy services. Completing this survey will help us to do that. Later in the year there will also be a full consultation on the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments when patients and the public will be able to contribute again.
Please take a few minutes to complete this survey- it will help us to understand where pharmacy services are good and if there are any areas that could be improved. No need to give your name; all your answers will be confidential and only used for statistical purposes.
