Residents can help shape the future of pharmacy services across City and Hackney as part of a review looking at the health needs across both areas, the number of community pharmacies in each borough and how accessible they are.
People can share their views in a consultation on the pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA) from 11 December 2017 to 9 February 2018.
