The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a document which describes how and where pharmacies in Hull provide their service and any gaps in how services are provided in the future. This is a statutory requirement of the Health and Wellbeing Board and the assessment must be updated every three years. This version is for the period 2018 to 2021.
The next PNA will be produced by October 2022 following an extension to the deadline due to the impact of COVID-19.
The document is used by NHS England to make decisions about whether to allow new pharmacies to open up in Hull and to approve changes to current pharmacies in Hull and should be used by commissioners of services alongside the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA).
A Supplementary Statement records changes to the provision of pharmacy services since the publication of the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment.
Supplementary Statements are issued for opening or closure of pharmacies or when there are pharmaceutical needs assessment changes that are minor and would be relevant for granting of applications. Once issued, a supplementary statement becomes part of the PNA and is published on this webpage.
