Pharmacy: Greater London

Volume 498: debated on Monday 2 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 14 July 2009, Official Report, column 352W, on pharmacy, what assessment he has made of (a) the effectiveness of the use of essential small pharmacy local pharmaceutical services contracts in London and (b) the adequacy of support provided to pharmacies in London that fail to reach their prescription item threshold.

It is for primary care trusts to assess what arrangements are required to ensure the proper and sufficient provision of drugs and medicines within their areas and the Department would not, therefore, undertake any such assessment.
