Residents across South Gloucestershire, Bristol and North Somerset are being invited to have their say on pharmacy services in the region.
Councils want to ensure they are meeting the needs of people and identify any gaps.
Pharmacies provide an important service for everyone. We are keen that our residents have their say on the future of these services especially around what is working well, and where there might be gaps. This is your opportunity to share your views.”
People's views will help develop a new Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment, which is produced every three years.
This will be used by the NHS to make decisions about applications for new pharmacies, and will also provide information for the commissioning of other services.
The consultation is open now until 27 November.
