Residents to have their say on pharmacy services in Bracknell Forest
26 June 2014Public Health in Berkshire is carrying out a survey to find out what Bracknell Forest residents think about local pharmacies.
The survey, which has been rolled out across the county, will be used to look at the services currently available at local pharmacies and make improvements.
Dr Lise Llewellyn, strategic director of Public Health Berkshire, said: “Nationally, more people visit community pharmacies than any other part of the NHS. We want to hear about people’s experiences and their opinions about the pharmacies they use, to help us plan for the future of this key service.
“Every day, almost 20,000 people in Berkshire visit local pharmacies. Residents not only get access to ongoing medication, but receive advice on how to take their medication and manage minor illnesses.”
Cllr Dale Birch, Bracknell Forest Council’s executive member for adult services, health and housing, said: “Local pharmacies play a vital role in helping people when they are not feeling well. I would like to encourage residents to take part in this important survey, which will help to improve the services which pharmacies provide.”
The survey ends on Friday, 4 July. All information provided will remain anonymous and kept strictly confidential. For more information, email PH.firstname.lastname@example.org
