Residents offered chance to shape future of borough’s pharmacies

Press release   •   Apr 28, 2014 15:20 BST

Rochdale Borough Council is inviting residents to have their say on the services provided by their local pharmacy.

The council is working with the NHS to gather important information about how people use their local pharmacies and residents are being asked to help us shape the services provided by completing the 'Rochdale Pharmacy Services Public Survey 2014'.

Michelle Loughlin, Consultant in Public Health for Rochdale Borough Council, said: “We are urging residents to give us their views so that Rochdale Borough Council and the NHS can support improvements to local pharmacy services. The more people who complete the survey, the better.”

The survey is anonymous and local people’s views will be used to help us make decisions about how best to improve the health of people in Rochdale borough and the health services they receive.

This may include looking at different ways in which community pharmacists can help the public to access medicines or asking pharmacists to provide different services for specific health problems.

Visit www.rochdale.gov.uk/improvingpharmacies to complete the survey. The closing date is May 25.
