On behalf of Dudley’s Health and Wellbeing Board the council is seeking views from the public and stakeholders about local pharmacy provision and their services within the borough.
During May people were asked to complete an online survey. This survey has now closed.
The findings of the survey together with additional research about the pharmacy provision in Dudley will be published in a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) on the Dudley Health and Wellbeing Board website on 1 October 2022.
A draft version will be published here from 1 July 2022 to 29 August 2002as part of a statutory 60-day consultation process where stakeholders will be able to have their say on this version before publication in the Autumn.
Each health and wellbeing board (HWBB) must assess needs for pharmaceutical services in its area and publish a PNA three years.
The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) is a crucial part of the market entry system for pharmacies and supports commissioning decisions based on patient needs.
