Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment consultation - Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Board - Ends 30 April 2017
Help local health and care planners understand whether pharmacy services in Cambridgeshire meet your needs. Tell them what is important to you about the services you use right now.
Cambridgeshire Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB), are looking at whether they have enough organisations providing pharmacy services for people in Cambridgeshire. Pharmaceutical services include filling prescriptions, selling medicines that don’t need to be prescribed by a doctor, giving advice about medicines, supporting people to quit smoking, and other services. These services can also supply appliances.
They have spoken to GPs, community pharmacies and patients about what local people need now from pharmaceutical services. They also asked what people might need in the future. They have written a report based on what they learned so far, called a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment or PNA for short. This report will be used by NHS England when making decisions on applications to open new pharmacies.
