The Pharmacy Review Steering Group (RSG) has today published its working plan for the contractor vote that will be held early in 2022 on the future of community pharmacy representation and support.
Since its launch, the RSG has been undertaking a programme of work to define the future of community pharmacy representation and support at both a local and national level, aiming to ensure that all contractors receive the best services possible.
These options are currently being developed and contractors and others are invited to take part in a series of engagement events taking place this month. Whatever the proposal looks like, the final decision on whether to implement the changes will be for contractors only to decide, and a contractor vote will be held early in 2022.
The paper sets out the RSG’s plan for that vote. In developing this, as in all its work, the RSG has sought to be as inclusive as possible and it has settled on a plan that will not reinforce divisions within the sector.
Contractors are encouraged to share their views with the RSG by attending the current round of focus groups, or further questions or feedback can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
