- the number and location of community-based pharmacies in the county

- how services provided by local pharmacies could be developed in line with Sunderland's Health and Wellbeing Strategy
NHS England will refer to the final assessment before proposing any changes, developing any new pharmacy services or considering applications for new pharmacies in Sunderland.
