PHARMACY PNAS, CONTROL OF ENTRY RULES and GP COMMISSIONING

I work in Birmingham and feel as many others do in the pharmacy industry that:

 

1. PNAs – Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment is a good idea but this assessment should allow for central governement funding as PCTS always say we have NO MONEY. Thus pharmacy cannot offer. What a waste of tax payers money on such a useless exercise.

 

2. COntrol of Entry rules should be tightened as they were prior to 100 hour exemptions etc immediately and the desirable and necessary test implemented within the PNAs. Also Appeals to the NHS litigation should remain as New proposed measures will not allow this and Judicial review from the applicant will be required to the Courts. Ludicrous but wont this cost the NHS more money than having a NHS litigation board as exists.

 

3. GP Commissioning – wow. Well what about Pharmacy Commissioning. Let an Pharmacy do the same as what GPs are being given power to do.

 

 

Why is this idea important?
