Public Health Dorset launches survey of pharmacies

Residents of DORSET are invited to take part in a survey of pharmacy services in the county.

Public Health Dorset (PHD) asks residents how they are using local chemists to shape service delivery for the future.

The results will form part of a pharmaceutical needs assessment for Dorset – PHD would like to know how people obtain prescription drugs, buy medicines or health products and/or get advice about a health condition or problem.

“We would really appreciate if you could take a few minutes to answer a few questions about pharmacy services – your views are important to us,” a PHD spokesperson said.

“Your responses will inform the development of the NAP, a statement of local people’s needs for pharmacy services, which will then be subject to formal consultation later in 2022.”

The information is collected by Public Health Dorset on behalf of Dorset and Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Health and Welfare Councils. Responses will be stored securely in accordance with GDPR regulations. The results of this questionnaire will be published as part of the draft NAP for consultation.
