Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment
The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) will enable NHS Somerset to undertake a number of commissioning and regulatory functions in relation to the provision of high quality pharmaceutical services for the population of Somerset. It will be used to prioritise the commissioning of services, and inform the consideration of applications and letting of contracts. The PNA will enable external stakeholders to understand the needs of the local population and the requirements for pharmaceutical services to meet those needs. Providers will be able to use the PNA to inform their applications to provide pharmaceutical services.
