Share post:

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has called its member to to express their views and fill out the Department of Health and Social Care’s hub and spoke survey on the proposed model of dispensing.

The Society has urged its members to fill out the survey before May 20.

RPS president Claire Anderson said: “It is vital that RPS members have their say on issue that impact you in your roles. Currently only single legal entities can make use of this model of dispensing.

“Our survey, which opened today, seeks your views and comments and will help to inform the RPS submission to this consultation.”

The consultation on the proposals to enable all community pharmacies to access hub and spoke dispensing published by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) will run for three months and will close on June 8, 2022.

The consultation seeks the views of stakeholders operating within the community pharmacy sector on key areas, including patient safety, governance, transparency, and accountability, and includes proposals on two different models of hub and spoke dispensing. It includes proposals on two different models of hub and spoke dispensing:

  • Model I, where the medicines are returned assembled from the hub to the spoke pharmacy before supply to the patient
  • Model II, where the hub pharmacy supplies medicines directly to the patient

The consultation can be found here.
