Friday 28th May 2021: RSG At A Glance Guide

The Pharmacy Representation Review Steering Group (RSG) has today published an At A Glance Guide to its work. The guide has been written for contractors and it should provide a useful recap on the RSG and its work.

The guide looks back to the reasons why the RSG was set up, following the PSNC-initiated independent review of the contractor representation and support offered by PSNC and LPCs.

It explains the work that the RSG has done to date, as well as setting out a draft timeline for next activities.

The guidance is accompanied by some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) following the RSG’s Contractor Forum Engagement event earlier this week on Tuesday 25 May.
