Hampshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

Assessing the need for pharmaceutical services across the county of Hampshire

Since April 2013 every Health and Wellbeing Board in England has a legal responsibility to publish and keep up to date a statement of the needs for pharmaceutical services of the population in its area, referred to as a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA). The PNA looks at the existing provision of community pharmacy services across Hampshire and whether this meets the current and future needs of the population. It can be used to make decisions in the commissioning of NHS-funded Pharmaceutical Services.

The statutory consultation process for the Hampshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment, which took place during Autumn/Winter 2017/18, has now been completed and the final report approved by the Health & Wellbeing Board.

Since 5th December 2016, the Health and Wellbeing Board has a statutory duty to make a representation to NHSE on consolidation applications of community pharmacies in its area (i.e. where pharmacy businesses on two or more sites propose to consolidate to a single existing site). The Health and Wellbeing Board must respond within 45 days. NHS England collate all responses from interested parties and then makes the final decision on the consolidation application.

This briefing presents the consolidation applications Hampshire Health and Wellbeing board have responded to since the publication of the latest PNA.
