Earlier this year, Suffolk County Council invited feedback on how Suffolk residents use pharmacy services. As a result of that feedback from the public, they "do not believe there are any gaps in provision of necessary pharmaceutical services in Suffolk".*

They have prepared a draft "Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment" (as they are obliged to do every three years), and are now seeking comments on that draft, which you can download here. It's an enormous document, coming to 256 pages in PDF form, and chock-a-block with maps, tables and graphs. But it contains some surprisingly interesting details, such as health statistics, and projected population growth in particular areas, as well as detailed information on pharmacy provision.

If you are interested in reviewing the draft, your comments are invited here, by the closing date of Sunday 10 December (giving you another month to wade through the many pages).
