For Commissioners

Avon Healthcare Services (AHS) was created to support your requirements to provide accessible, high quality services to improve the health of your patients and public.

The members of AHS are community pharmacies which allows you confidence that the service you commission comes with

  • 98% of the population can access a pharmacy on foot or by public transport within 20 minutes
  • Most services can be provided without the need for an appointment
  • Many pharmacies are open extended hours, from early in the morning to late at night – and also on Sundays


Clinical Governance

  • The services are provided under the supervision of a highly trained and inspected healthcare professional
  • Pharmacy has a proven track record of providing healthcare services that are safe, secure, and cost-effective


Patient Preference

  • In patient surveys pharmacy is regularly the most trusted healthcare profession
  • Pharmacy services routinely have the highest patient preference for healthcare services


Convenience

  • No need for the cost and time of agreeing and servicing multiple contracts – one contract with AHS allows you to access to a network of pharmacy providers
