Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

Residents are being asked for their views on the draft St Helens Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) for 2022-2025.

The PNA presents a local picture of community pharmacies and pharmaceutical services in St Helens, how these services are currently delivered and what the current and potential need is for pharmacy services in St Helens.

The PNA is a statutory document and is used by NHS England when they are reviewing any applications for new pharmacy provision or approving any changes to existing pharmacies e.g. if they want to move premises or provide more pharmacy services.

As part of the process of producing a PNA, we need to undertake a 60-day consultation and ask the views of people in St Helens to help shape the final PNA document, which will be published later in the year.

How to get involved

We have created a consultation questionnaire which asks questions about the draft St Helens PNA document. The consultation will run from Friday 1 July to Wednesday 31 August 2022. To view the draft St Helens PNA document and complete the questionnaire, please use the links below:

If you require a paper copy of the PNA or consultation questionnaire, please contact the St Helens Borough Council Contact Centre on 01744 676789.

We appreciate you taking the time to complete the consultation questionnaire.
