Help shape future of pharmacies in Kingston

People are being asked for their views on their local chemist shops as part of a review of pharmacies in the borough.

Kingston’s Public Health team wants to hear from people about where they pick up prescriptions and buy medicines in a bid to help to assess local services and needs.

The survey does not include hospital pharmacies.

Dr Jonathan Hildebrand, Kingston’s Director of Public Health, said:

“Helping people to improve their health and wellbeing is a top priority.

Pharmacy services play a key role in supporting people who live and work in the borough to live healthier, more independent lives.

“In the autumn we will review pharmacy services across the borough. This will look at existing services, the needs of our residents and those working in the borough, and how things might change in the future. To help us, we want to hear from as many people as possible to get an accurate picture of existing pharmacy services.”

The questionnaire takes just a few minutes to fill in and is anonymous and confidential:
