Our responses to consultations


We’re often asked for our views on a variety of topics. This is usually by national and local government,  local NHS commissioners, or by organisations that represent:

  • patients and the public
  • pharmacists
  • people involved in educating and training pharmacists
  • those working to transform the NHS

Here are our most recent responses to consultations and requests for feedback:

  • On 12 October 2020 West Sussex LPC received a case study with formal recommendations for action from Healthwatch West Sussex. The report highlighted older and vulnerable patients queuing outside premises in adverse weather. The message accompanying the report asked us to help Healthwatch West Sussex understand how pharmacies are reviewing access to avoid people being left out in the rain and cold.  Here is our response to the five formal recommendations in HealthWatch case study report called Baby it’s cold outside … October 2020.
  • Following the first phase of the emergency response to Covid19, we have submitted local examples of community pharmacy innovations and improvements to NHS England Improvements (NHSE&I) call for beneficial examples.
