Portsmouth Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) is under a statutory obligation to draft, consult upon and publish a pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA).

A 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.

Portsmouth’s Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2022 is available here.
