Residents are being asked to identify if there are any gaps in the county’s current pharmaceutical services in West Sussex.
The Have Your Say survey will inform the West Sussex Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) which looks at whether services meet the current and future needs of the people of West Sussex.
The survey also captures the important wider role pharmacies play as the first port of call for health advice, information and supporting self-care as well as offering many services that enhance health and wellbeing.
Pharmaceutical services in West Sussex are provided by pharmacies (chemists), dispensing doctors and appliance contractors, such as prescription medicines, medical appliances and health advice.
The survey can be found online at https://haveyoursay.westsussex.gov.uk/public-health/pnasurvey and is open until Monday 27 March.
Paper copies of the surveys can also be found in local pharmacies, GP surgeries and libraries across West Sussex.
