Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment Consultation
Have your say on local pharmacy services.
The draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) looks at the current provision of pharmaceutical services across Staffordshire and whether this meets the current and future needs of the County. Any potential gaps have been identified alongside suggestions for how these could be addressed.
PNAs are used by NHS England to inform decisions regarding applications for new or changes to, existing pharmaceutical services and to make decisions in the commissioning of NHS-funded services that can be provided by local community pharmacies. In addition local authorities and clinical commissioning groups also use the PNA when commissioning services to meet local health needs and priorities.
This is the second PNA that has been undertaken by Staffordshire’s Health and Wellbeing Board, the first was published in 2015. We want to know what you think about the current draft PNA document.
The consultation has now closed. Thank you to all those who responded to the survey.
Your answers will be used to help shape the updated version of the PNA which will be ready for publication by 1st April 2018.
