Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)


Supporting Information

This Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a key document that is utilised in the development and improvement of pharmaceutical services in East Sussex. National Health Service (NHS) England is responsible for commissioning pharmaceutical services and is expected to make reference to the PNA  when making decisions about market entry for new service providers, as well as in commissioning advanced and enhanced services. All Health and Wellbeing Boards are required to publish a PNA to cover a three year period.

The main aim of the East Sussex PNA is to describe the current pharmaceutical services in East Sussex, systematically identify any gaps/unmet needs and, in consultation with stakeholders, make recommendations on future development.
