DURHAM COUNTY COUNCIL CONSULTATIONS
What do you think of the pharmacies and GP practice dispensaries in County Durham?
Pharmacies and, in rural areas GP practice dispensaries, are an integral part of our community and to ensure that they continue to meet residents needs, Durham County Council are

From 16 May to 14 July 2022, DCC are holding an online consultation with residents, which is part of a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). Producing a PNA is a
