Results Updated 18 May 2015

For access to the public consultation report, please follow the link to PNA appendix 3.



Every few years, pharmaceutical needs assessments (PNAs) are carried out around the country to ensure that local community pharmacies are meeting the needs of local people. 

These assessments help those who commission, or buy, pharmacy services to make sure they are in the right place and provide what local people need.

PNAs are now the responsibility of Health and Wellbeing Boards, which were created following the Health and Social Care Act 2012. These Boards bring together local authorities, the NHS and other key partners to oversee health and wellbeing in their areas.

Leicester City Health and Wellbeing Board has now created a draft PNA for Leicester City and we would like your comments on it.

You can access the full draft PNA document and the PNA summary document which draws out the key themes and highlights by accessing the link provided in the 'Related Links' section located at the bottom of this page.   


Why We Are Consulting

Earlier in the year we asked for people’s views on their local pharmacies, and we took into account what we were told then. We’d now like you to take some time to look at what the PNA says about local pharmacies in Leicester, and to tell us if you agree.

You are also more than welcome to attend the public meeting during this consultation which is being held on Friday 12th November at 6 pm  in the Tea Room at Leicester Town Hall, Town Hall Square, Leicester.

Thank you for your time in completing this short survey
