Pharmacy: Private Sector

Volume 475: debated on Friday 9 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent representations he has received on the viability of independent pharmacies; and if he will make a statement. (204624)

Since the publication of our White Paper “Pharmacy in England—Building on strengths, delivering the future” on 3 April 2008, the Department has received a number of representations on a range of issues, including the viability of independent pharmacies. We are actively seeking feedback on the White Paper generally and on key proposals for structural change, including through the series of public events currently being held across the country.
