Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a statement of the need for pharmaceutical services within the district. Pharmaceutical services are provided from Pharmacies, Dispensing Appliance Contractors, Dispensing Doctors and Local Pharmaceutical Services.

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.
