Cumbria Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2022

Closed 23 Aug 2022

Opened 24 Jun 2022


The Cumbria Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) has produced a draft local Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) with the aim of reviewing accessibility to local pharmacy services in the county. 

A PNA describes community pharmacy services currently being provided in a specific area, identifying where and when these are available and it assesses current and future health needs of the local population.

Following the consultation, the new PNA will be published by October 1 2022 and will be used to inform commissioning of pharmacy services by local authorities as well as health and care providers, including NHS England, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Integrated Care Boards.

To provide your feedback on the draft PNA, please complete the following survey before the closing date on August 23 2022.

Why your views matter

The main goal of this PNA is to assess if current pharmacy services are meeting the needs of Cumbrians.
