Rochdale borough Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

Rochdale borough Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

The local Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) provides vital information that helps local areas plan the provision of community pharmacies for their local people. The PNA is a way of making sure that pharmacies across the borough are providing the right services in the right locations to support its residents.

During the reorganisation of the NHS, the responsibility for the production of the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments transferred to the Health and Wellbeing Boards (HWB) which are hosted by the local authorities. Rochdale Borough HWB has produced their second PNA in collaboration with the Greater Manchester Shared Services (NHS).

The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment is due to be renewed and published by the Local Authority Health and Wellbeing Board in 2025.
