Invitation to comment on the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for North East Lincolnshire.
The North East Lincolnshire PNA is an assessment of the population’s needs for pharmaceutical services in the North East Lincolnshire area.
From April 2013, Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWBs) assumed responsibility for PNAs. The North East Lincolnshire HWB has been developing a PNA for North East Lincolnshire covering the period 2015 to 2018 and the HWB is inviting comments on the draft document.
PNAs are used by the NHS to make decisions on which NHS funded services need to be provided by local community pharmacies. The PNA will help NHS England when making decisions on whether to approve applications to open new pharmacies and will help to gauge the adequacy of current services and what future needs there might be.
How can I have my say?
The consultation periods runs from 12 January 2015 to 12 March 2015.
Using the findings from this consultation and from other feedback, a final PNA for North East Lincolnshire will be published April 2015.
