Have your say on pharmacy services in Warrington

Residents are being asked for their views on Warrington’s Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (2022-25).

Warrington Health and Wellbeing Board are in the process of developing an updated Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment for the borough. Residents are now being invited to read the draft assessment and share their views to help ensure the assessment reflects local need, both now and in the future.

A Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a statutory document that describes health and wellbeing need and the provision of pharmacy services. The PNA is used by NHS England when they are reviewing any applications for new pharmacy provision or approving any changes to existing contracts.

How to get involved

In developing the PNA, the Pharmaceutical Regulations require that local health leaders undertake a formal consultation on a draft of its PNA. 

The consultation will run from Monday 4 April to Friday 10 June 2022. All feedback must be provided using the consultation questionnaire.

If you would like to request a paper copy of the document or the consultation questionnaire, or would like the documents in another format, please contact the public health business unit. Email PublicHealthBusinessUnit@warrington.gov.uk or call 01925 443322.
