Volume 470: debated on Wednesday 23 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what progress is being made in providing additional services at pharmacies (a) in Barnet and (b) elsewhere; and if he will make a statement. (179072)

In 2006-07, 96 local enhanced services were provided by community pharmacies in contract with Barnet Primary Care Trust. Nationally, 20,996 such services were provided.

We will publish a pharmacy White Paper in due course. This will set out our future proposals for developing quality pharmacy services for national health service patients and consumers and any legislative reform necessary.
