Your chance to let Public Health Suffolk know what you think of pharmacy services in the county
A consultation has been launched to help shape the future of pharmacy services across Suffolk.
The questionnaire has been opened to enable Suffolk residents to provide feedback on pharmacy services across the county.
The views, experiences and opinions of respondents will be fed into a wider piece of work that is looking at the health needs of Suffolk, the level of accessibility of pharmacy services and how these will be maintained and developed moving forward. More »
Cllr Tony Goldson, Suffolk County Council's Cabinet Member for Health and Chairman of Suffolk Health and Wellbeing Board, said: "Pharmacies play an important role in our communities, therefore I strongly encourage everyone to complete this survey.
"Your views are instrumental in developing our pharmacy services in the future."
The survey can be accessed on www.healthysuffolk.org.uk and the closing date is Friday 31 March 2017. Hard copies of the questionnaire can be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning 01473 260079. » Less

Free to Suffolk Preservation Society Members
Haughley Park Barn Tuesday May 9 2017, 9.45am – 1pm
Suffolk has a rich archaeological heritage, a physical record of our past, with many treasures discovered but much yet to be revealed. Archaeology is a material consideration in the planning process and legislation and policy have evolved to achieve a balance between the rights of the landowner and the potential damage to important historical resources. Therefore it is important for local councils and other stakeholders with an interest in our historic environment to understand the role of archaeology in the planning process. More »
Dr Richard Hoggett is a heritage consultant with over twenty years' experience in the academic, commercial & local authority heritage sectors. Until 2016 he was a Senior Archaeological Officer with the Suffolk County Council Archaeological Service where he managed the Suffolk Historic Environment Record & provided specialist archaeological advice to Local Planning Authorities, developers & landowners. He will introduce us to the topic of archaeology and planning in Suffolk and give an outline of the planning process and how to frame an effective response to applications that have an archaeological dimension.
