NHS contracts are very hard to obtain unless there has been a change in circumstances (for example, 1,000 new homes being built with a new GP surgery as part of the development).
We can help to acquire a new full NHS contract by
- Full research of the area
- Helping to prove that there is a need for a new contract as there is a gap in the local pharmacy service provision
- Assess the Pharmacy Needs Assessment (PNA) to ensure it is fit for purpose
- Help with the application, cover letter, and evidence
- Business plan
- SWOT analysis
- Site survey
It should be noted that this application will usually be appealed and PCL can then help to prepare evidence for the appeal and be present at the appeal if required to do so.
