Consultation on the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment for Hampshire 2022

Consultation open until

Hampshire Health and Wellbeing Board is under a statutory obligation to develop, consult upon and update a pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA)

Section 126 of the 2006 Act places an obligation on NHS England and NHS Improvement to put arrangements in place so that drugs, medicines and listed appliances ordered via NHS prescriptions can be supplied to persons. The Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) for 2019/20 to 2023/24 was agreed by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) and describes a joint vision for how community pharmacy will support delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan.

Pharmaceutical services is a collective term for a range of services commissioned by NHS England. In relation to PNAs it includes:

  • Essential services
  • Advanced services
  • Enhanced services
  • Local pharmaceutical services (LPS) contracts that are the equivalent of essential, advanced and enhanced services.

The purpose of the PNA is to assess and set how the provision of pharmaceutical services can meet the current and future health needs of the population of Hampshire for a period of up to three years. The document is then used by NHS England as the basis for determining market entry to a pharmaceutical list including the opening of additional pharmacies, relocations of premises and amendments to opening hours or pharmaceutical services.

The consultation is open from 4 April 2022 and closes at 11.59pm on 5June 2022.

Note that responses received after this time will not be included in the findings report.

The Health and Wellbeing Board is required to consult a specified range of relevant organisations on a draft of the PNA at least once during the process of developing the document. This consultation is also open to members of the public. Your feedback will be used to inform further development of the PNA which will be published in October this year. The consultation is available here until 5 June 2022.
