Local contractors urged to have a say on the on the structures, processes and roles of LPCs and PSNC

February 10, 2020

Community pharmacy contractors (owners) across Surrey and Sussex are being asked to give their views on how LPCs and PSNC could do things differently in the future. 

The team carrying out an independent review into representation and support for community pharmacy contractors has already undertaken four focus groups with 32 LPC members, representing 29 LPCs, four focus groups with 40 contractors, more than ten interviews with LPC Chairs and Chief Officers and visited a number of LPCs to observe how they operate.

What they really need now is for contractors to fully engage with the process and make their views heard through a national contractor survey.

Sandra Lamont, communications and engagement lead for the three Sussex and Surrey LPCs, said: “The review team needs to hear from contractors across Surrey and Sussex about LPC roles and representation, finances, governance, accountability and effectiveness of communication.

“It’s about making sure everyone has a chance to shape how they are represented and supported” she added

A draft report is expected to be prepared for the review steering group to consider in by March 2020

Complete the contractor survey. It is open until the end of February 2020– please note, this survey should only be completed by community pharmacy contractors (owners)
