Review Steering Group (RSG) proposals now published and upcoming briefing events
The Pharmacy Review Steering Group (RSG) proposals on the future of the representation and support provided by PSNC and LPCs have now been published on the RSG website. The RSG has been working to solve the issues identified by David Wright’s Independent Review into community pharmacy contractor representation and support and publication of the proposals follows a year of extensive listening, exploratory work, analysis, and discussion within the sector.
Contractors now have four weeks to read the proposals, after which you will be asked to vote to either accept or reject them in full. A three-week voting period will begin in the w/c 23rd May, during which contractors can cast their vote using a secure and trusted online voting system. The full set of proposals can be viewed on the RSG website.
To help contractors to understand the proposals the RSG plans to hold several national and regional briefing events during the pre-vote period in May. Information about these events is available on the RSG website. The south west briefing event is on the 9th May at 8.00 pm details are here, although contractors can attend any of the arranged events as the information given will be the same.
We strongly encourage all contractors within Devon to attend one of the events to learn more about the proposals and to ask any questions you may have.
