Joint Public consultation for new community pharmacy

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde is currently in discussion with BGR Healthcare Ltd (intended applicant) who wishes to open a new community pharmacy at 258b Faifley Road, Glasgow, G81 5EH.

Before BGR Healthcare Ltd submits a formal application, this joint consultation exercise is being carried out to seek the views of people local to the proposed premises, or those who might use the proposed new community pharmacy.

The consultation is looking for opinion on the current access to services people normally get from a community pharmacy within this area. It is also asking if the services provided by the community pharmacies already in the area are adequate to meet the needs of residents and others. To help you with this, the intended applicant has defined an area (shown in the map below) which they consider best describes the “neighbourhood” where the premises are situated and where services would be provided to. We encourage your response to this consultation as it will help identify the level of public support for this proposal.
