PNA Consultation

Closes 4 Sep 2022

Opened 4 Jul 2022


Wolverhampton's Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment is now out for its public consultation, which lasts for 60-days.

The government requires all Health and Wellbeing Boards to produce an assessment of pharmaceutical services in their area every three years, under the NHS. The next assessment is due by 1st October 2022. This document is called the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). 

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2022-25 draft is available to view below. The PDF is available to download by clicking on the two arrows in the top right corner of the window.

The PNA is a report on the present needs for pharmaceutical services. It is used to identify any gaps in current services or improvements that could be made in future pharmaceutical service provision. The document is then used by NHS England as the basis for determining market entry to a pharmaceutical list including the opening of additional pharmacies, relocations of premises, and amendments to opening hours or pharmaceutical services.

Why your views matter

As part of the NHS Pharmaceutical Services Regulations 2013, the Wolverhampton Health and Wellbeing Board is required to consult a specified range of relevant organisations on a draft of the PNA at least once during the process of developing the document. This consultation is also open to members of the public. Your feedback will be used to inform further development of the PNA which will be published in October this year.

Please tell us what you think of the PNA by completing the online survey.
