VIEWS on pharmacies are wanted by County Hall.

Essex County Council has launched a consultation on chemist services.

Results from the anonymous questionnaire will help the authority and health bodies assess how good current services are and what needs there might be in the future.

A report, the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment for Essex, will be published early next year.

Ann Naylor, county councillor for public health and wellbeing, said: “We would really encourage members of the public to tell us about their experiences of pharmaceutical services.

“It will only take a few minutes to complete, so please take advantage of this opportunity to help shape the services of the future.”
