Consultation on the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)

Overview

What is the PNA?

From 1st April 2013, every Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) in England has a statutory responsibility to publish and keep up to date a statement of the needs for pharmaceutical services of the population in its area, referred to as a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).

This PNA looks at the current provision of pharmaceutical services across Birmingham and whether this meets the current and future needs of the Birmingham. Any potential gaps to service delivery are identified and recommendations are made regarding how to address these. 

This is the second PNA that has been undertaken by Birmingham's HWB, the first was published in 2015. This updated version will be ready for publication by the 1st April 2018.

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 the Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups can also use the PNA when commissioning services to meet local health needs and priorities.
