Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

This page contains documents that relate to our Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).

Regulations published in 2010 placed each PCT under a duty to prepare and publish a PNA by 1 February 2011.

These first PNAs were required to be reviewed within three years and also to be updated through either the publication of supplementary statements or a full review dependent on the nature of changes.

In September 2012, regulations setting out a new system for pharmacy market entry were published.

This system means that applications to open new pharmacies providing NHS pharmaceutical services must be considered against the PNA for the area in which the application relate and PNAs will need to be reviewed no later than 31 March 2015.
