Reminder: NHS Choices profile access rights
Every pharmacy delivering NHS care in England has a profile presence (mini-website) on the NHS Choices website (www.nhs.uk). Registration to edit a pharmacy profile and/or respond to patient feedback left on the site can now be arranged by emailing the NHS Choices helpdesk.
By now you should have receieved a letter from the NHS Choices Team (unless you are a CCA or AIMp member), outlining the arrangements for registration. If you have not already been signed-up to NHS Choices by your PCT, simply follow the steps in the letter to get registered. If you did not receive the letter, contact the NHS Choices helpdesk (email@example.com or 0845 650 4865). They will be able to register you without the unique reference number provided on the letter but it will be a longer process as they need to verify your identity.
CCA and AIMp have indicated that their member companies will be co-ordinating registration at Head Office level therefore NHS Choices will be in direct contact with the relevant Head Offices rather than individual branches.
More detailed guidance can be found in the NHS Choices section of this website (www.psnc.org.uk/NHSChoices).
