Opened 23 Jun 2022

Overview

Coventry City Council and Warwickshire County Council are consulting on the Coventry and Warwickshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) which is due to be published on 1st October 2022.

What is a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment?

This is a key document used by:

  • NHS England to inform decisions about applications for new, or changes to existing pharmaceutical services, and the commissioning of NHS-funded services that can be provided by local community pharmacies
  • local authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) when commissioning services to meet local health needs and priorities

 The PNA will:

  • look at the current provision of pharmaceutical services across Coventry and Warwickshire
  • assess whether service provision meets the current and future needs of the population and;
  • identify any potential gaps to service delivery.

About this consultation

This consultation is an opportunity to share your views on the draft PNA document to ensure it accurately reflects the current provision and needs (both current and future) of the area in relation to community pharmacies.
