Portsmouth Health and Wellbeing Board is under a statutory obligation to draft, consult upon and publish a pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA).
A Pharmaceutical Needs assessment (PNA) is a statement of current pharmaceutical services provided in the local area. It also assesses whether or not the pharmaceutical services provision is satisfactory for the local population and identifies any perceived gaps in the provision. Once published the PNA will be used by NHS England to assist in responding to applications for opening of additional pharmacies, relocation of premises and amendments to opening hours or pharmaceutical services.
We are now conducting a public consultation to seek your views on whether you agree with the contents of this draft PNA and whether it addresses issues that you consider are relevant to the provision of pharmaceutical services. The draft is available for review in the document section of this page.
The survey will take between 5-10 minutes to complete.
The closing date for the consultation is Wednesday 27th December at 9am.
