Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 60 day statutory consultation

North Yorkshire’s Health and Wellbeing Board is undertaking a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA), which is a legal, comprehensive, assessment of the current and future needs of local people for community pharmacy services.

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment is important because it will be used as the basis for informing decisions when applications for new pharmacies are received and for commissioning of new services within community pharmacies.
