Charlotte has over 20 years’ experience in the health sector locally, regionally and nationally.
She has worked with Department of Health-led committees in developing pharmaceutical services regulations and was seconded to the DH to write the guidance to accompany the NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2012, focussing on both pharmaceutical needs assessments (PNAs) and the determination of applications for new or additional pharmacy and dispensing appliance contractor premises. These documents formed the basis of the current DH documents relating to the NHS (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013, as amended (the 2013 regulations).
She is recognised as a national expert on 2013 regulations and the preceding regulations and runs local and national events focussing on various elements of the regulations including PNAs, market entry and rurality. She is currently updating the NHS England pharmacy manual.
