Extended Advisory Group on the NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations

The Advisory Group on the NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations is drawn from leading interested parties. Regulations requiring primary care trusts to develop and publish pharmaceutical needs assessments came into force in May 2010. Read the previous meeting minutes publishied before March 2011

As from 1 April 2013, it is expected that the NHS Commissioning Board will take over responsibility for the administration of the NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2012 regulations as part of the implementation of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The exception to this is that responsibility for the development and updating of pharmaceutical needs assessments transfers to local authority Health and Wellbeing Boards. As part of this implementation, we are extending the work of the Advisory Group who helped us develop the 2012 regulations in order to develop them to fit the new NHS architecture and subject to ministerial clearance, expect the revised regulations to come into force from 1 April 2013.
