RSG proposals published

The Review Steering Group (RSG) has published its proposals for the future of community pharmacy contractor representation and support. The proposals make 37 recommendations for the future of PSNC and the LPCs which the RSG says have been written to strengthen governance, better align with the NHS, appropriately resource representatives, and strengthen collaboration.

The RSG has made 23 proposals regarding PSNC alone, and 10 for PSNC to consider jointly with the LPCs. There are 6 recommendations for LPCs to consider. Contractors are being asked to consider the proposals and then vote on them during a three-week voting period beginning in the week commencing 23rd May.

Contractors are also being invited to attend one of a series of events being run by the RSG which can be booked onto here. The Chief Executive of PSNC, Janet Morrison, will be attending the national RSG events on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th May – following requests from LPCs and contractors to hear from PSNC on this topic.

PSNC strongly encourages contractors to engage with the RSG’s work by reading the full proposals and attending an engagement event. Recognising the significant current pressures on contractors, PSNC also welcomes the wide range of engagement options available including the Executive Summary of the proposals, animations and other communications.
