The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) is recognised by the Secretary of State for Health as representative of community pharmacy on NHS matters. PSNC's main objective is to secure the best possible NHS service opportunities, remuneration, terms and conditions for NHS pharmacy contractors in England and Wales. PSNC represents and promotes the interests of almost 11,000 pharmacy contractors (pharmacy owners) in England and Wales. It is the role of PSNC to liaise with the Department of Health and to negotiate the contractual terms for the provision of NHS community pharmacy services.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is the government agency which is responsible for ensuring that medicines and medical devices work, and are acceptably safe. No product is risk-free. Underpinning all their work lie robust and fact-based judgements to ensure that the benefits to patients and the public justify the risks. They keep watch over medicines and devices, and they take any necessary action to protect the public promptly if there is a problem. They aim to make as much information as possible publicly available. They enable greater access to products, and the timely introduction of innovative treatments and technologies that benefit patients and the public. They encourage everyone - the public and healthcare professionals as well as industry - to tell them about any problems with a medicine or medical device, so that they can investigate and take any necessary action.
