PSNC responds to Future Forum Report
PSNC has responded to the publication of the independent Future Forum’s report on NHS reforms, and broadly welcomes its recommendations.
PSNC Chief Executive Sue Sharpe said:
“PSNC broadly welcomes today’s report from the Future Forum. An emphasis on co-operation between professions, the extension of a choice mandate to the NHS Commissioning Board and strengthened health and wellbeing boards are all good for pharmacy. The report emphasises the importance of transparency and robust governance for commissioning organisations, which was one of our biggest concerns with the Bill.”
“While there are areas where the Future Forum panel could have gone further, we support the report’s recommendations and call for the Government to implement them.”
“Ash Soni made a positive and helpful contribution to the work of the Forum, and will continue to do so.”
The Future Forum report can be found on the Department of Health website.
