There is still time for people to have their say on Wolverhampton's draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment, which will help shape chemist facilities in the city up to 2025.

The draft assessment, along with a short survey, is available at PNA Consultation, with a deadline for comments of Sunday 4 September.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "Local pharmacies offer a range of services to improve people’s health beyond the safe dispensing of medicines, and are a key contributor to meeting the health needs of our local population. 

"The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment is an important piece of work as it is vital in helping us shape provision in the city, and it's really important that people have their say. Please take a few moments to read the draft assessment and complete the short survey."

James Laycock, Pharmacist at Pennfields Pharmacy, said: “Community pharmacies play a vital role in the primary care system, to ensure that patients get the best care possible and supporting them to maintain their health and wellbeing. 

“As we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmacies are continuing to play a crucial role in supporting vaccinations and testing.”
