Community Pharmacy Contractors asked to feed into independent review

Community Pharmacy Contractors asked to feed into independent review

February 12, 2020

The team carrying out the independent review into representation and support for community pharmacy contractors wants to hear from contractors in England.

A national contractor survey, open until the end of February 2020, is seeking views on the structures, processes and roles of LPCs and PSNC. In particular, participants will be asked about committee make up, LPC roles and representation, finances, governance, accountability and effectiveness of communication.

The survey allows all contractors to have their say and to have direct input into the review. The team hopes to receive as many responses as possible from owners of all types of community pharmacy businesses across England.

This phase of the review follows a series of focus groups, held with LPCs and contractors around the country, which have helped to shape the survey. A second survey seeking views from LPCs is running in tandem with the contractor one.

The review will result in recommendations for how to optimise PSNC and LPC contractor representation and support, ensuring that the national network structure is working as efficiently for contractors as it can and is fit for the future.

The NPA has produced a video delivered by their CEO Mark Lyonette which highlights the importance of independent contractors contributing to the Review and supporting local leadership.  It’s about three minutes long and worth a quick look.
