responding to consultations

We frequently respond to consultations issued by a range of organisations including Government Departments, regulatory bodies and other healthcare and professional bodies.

Organisations running consultations seek views and feedback on proposals to change policy, draft guidance, standards documents and other call for evidence.

We respond on behalf of the membership to ensure that pharmacy has a clear, strong voice in all discussions which affect healthcare and pharmacy. Our aim is to ensure that the views of members and experts within the profession are reflected in our responses to consultations, therefore we work in partnership with expert groups to provide a coordinated response to consultations where appropriate.

If you would like to provide your input to consultations we are responding to, please email [email protected]
