Brighton Hove PNA March 2015

What is the PNA?

This report sets out the draft Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for Brighton and Hove. The PNA is a comprehensive statement of the need for pharmaceutical services of the population in its area. The PNA aims to identify the pharmaceutical needs of the local population by mapping current pharmaceutical services, identifying gaps and exploring possible future needs. It aims to support efforts to reduce health inequalities and improve health and wellbeing of local people. The PNA will be used by NHS England to decide upon applications to open new pharmacies and it will inform all commissioners regarding the commissioning of pharmaceutical services.
