Newcastle-wide

Please tell us what you think about pharmacy services in Newcastle

Newcastle City Council would like to hear what you think of pharmacy services in your area to help us develop how these services are delivered in future. Pharmacy services include: 
  • dispensing medicines and medical appliances, such as blood pressure monitors
  • disposing of unwanted or spare medicines
  • advising people on how they can care for themselves and manage their medical conditions
  • providing advice on healthy living, such as Stop Smoking services
  • providing medicines and support when people have been discharged from hospital.

Your views will help inform the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for the next three years. This is when we gather information to help us understand what the health needs are for people living in the Newcastle area, the level and accessibility of pharmacy services in Newcastle, and how these services can be maintained and developed in future to meet people’s needs. As part of this, we need to know what people think about their local pharmacies and the services they provide. 

This should take no longer than ten minutes of your time. You cannot be identified from your answers, and we will keep your answers private. Please be as open and honest as you can so we can identify areas which need improvement, and develop services for you. The final Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment will be published on the Council’s website: www.newcastle.gov.uk 
If you have any questions about this, or you need this information in a different format, such as large print, please email Andre Yeung the Specialist Pharmacy Advisor in our Public Health team, at: andre.yeung@newcastle.gov.uk, or call: 0191 278 7878.
Please give us your views by Wednesday 9 April 2022.
