PEOPLE are being urged to have their say on pharmacy provision across the district.

A survey has been launched to help assess if there are "the right number of local pharmacies in the right places" within communities.

The research is being carried out by the Bradford District Health & Wellbeing Board.

Feedback will be used to help develop a draft pharmaceutical needs assessment, which will then be available for public consultation later in the year.

The results will assist with commissioning decisions by the local authority, NHS England and clinical commissioning groups.

Anyone who uses pharmaceutical services in the district is invited to give their views, anonymously and confidentially.

The questionnaire can be found in the consultations section of the Bradford Council website –

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, the council’s executive member for healthy people and places, said: "Pharmacies are a vital part of local communities and it is important that people respond to this consultation.

"We need to understand where pharmacies are already performing well and areas that potentially need improvement so that the council, NHS partners and other health services can ensure that everyone gets access to the best services possible."

The survey will close on February 11.
