Findings of the Independent Review into Contractor Representation and Support Published

June 22, 2020

The findings and recommendations of the independent review into community pharmacy representation and support have been published on Friday 19th June.

The review was commissioned jointly by PSNC and LPCs last year to look for ways in which they could work more effectively together, and to ensure that the representation and support network for contractors – both local and national – is fit for the future.

The review was led by Professor David Wright, Professor of Pharmacy Practice at the University of East Anglia (UEA), working with a team of UEA researchers and taking evidence through focus groups, interviews and surveys from people across the community pharmacy sector and beyond.
