Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment
What is the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)?
The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a statement of the need for pharmaceutical services. Pharmaceutical Services are provided from Pharmacies, Dispensing Appliance Contractors, Dispensing Doctors and Local Pharmaceutical Services.
This Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is part of the overall planning for health and social care in the Health and Wellbeing Board area and is an assessment of the pharmaceutical need for the East Riding area. It is a statutory document which is the responsibility of the East Riding of Yorkshire Health and Wellbeing Board.
PNAs are primarily used by NHS England to determine whether to approve the opening of new pharmacies in an area and may be used by Clinical Commissioning Groups and Local Authorities to inform commissioning decisions
The PNA provides intelligence to create, improve or provide better access to pharmaceutical services and includes the following information:
- The demography of the area;
- Whether there is sufficient choice with regard to obtaining pharmaceutical services in the area;
- Ward profiles with insights into the health burden in different Wards and any identified gaps in provision or need;
- Services provided in neighbouring Health and Wellbeing Board areas and other NHS services provided in its own or neighbouring area which may affect pharmaceutical need in its own area;
- Future planned developments;
- Relevant maps relating to the area.
The East Riding PNA can be found here along with the current provision maps which can be found in the table below.
Supplementary Statements record minor changes to the availability of pharmaceutical services during the 3-year term of the PNA that are relevant for the granting of pharmacy applications by NHS England. Once issued, the Supplementary Statement(s) published below become part of the PNA.
