Surrey Draft PNA Consultation

Closed 12 Jul 2022

Opened 13 May 2022


Surrey Health and Wellbeing Board has produced the first draft of its 2022 Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).

From the 1st April 2013, Health and Wellbeing Boards have had a statutory responsibility to publish and keep the PNA up to date. The purpose of the PNA is to assess and set how the provision of pharmaceutical services can meet the current and future health needs of the population of Surrey for a period of up to three years. The document is then used by NHS England as the basis for determining market entry to a pharmaceutical list including the opening of additional pharmacies, relocations of premises and amendments to opening hours or pharmaceutical services.

As part of the NHS Pharmaceutical Services Regulations 2013, the Surrey Health and Wellbeing Board is required to consult a specified range of relevant organisations on a draft of the PNA at least once during the process of developing the document. This consultation is also open to members of the public. Your feedback will be used to inform further development of the PNA which will be published in October this year.

We therefore invite you to view and comment during the consultation period:

Friday 13th May 2022 to Tuesday 12th July 2022 at 11:59pm.

Note that responses received after this time may not be included in the findings report.
