Pharmaceutical Needs Consultation

Residents of Central Bedfordshire, Bedford Borough and Milton Keynes have the chance to give their views on pharmaceutical services in their local areas.

It is part of the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA), which runs until 15 December 2017.

A PNA looks at what pharmaceutical services are currently in an area, whether this meets local needs and if there are any gaps.

Residents are being asked to give feedback on the services offered by local pharmacies, which could include offering health advice and information such as stop-smoking services, sexual health and drug support services as well as providing over-the-counter medicines, and whether this meets local needs.

All local authorities are required to keep an updated PNA document, so feedback is also sought on each of the documents to help identify any issues that affect the commissioning of pharmaceutical services and the ability to meet local health needs and priorities.

People can take part in one or both sections of the consultation. All feedback will be considered by the health and well-being boards from the three local authorities and help them to identify any current and future services that may need to be commissioned.
