Have Your Say on Pharmacy Services in Rutland

Since April 2013, every Health and Wellbeing Board in England has been responsible for publishing and updating a statement of the need for pharmaceutical services in its area. This is known as a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).

Rutland Health and Wellbeing Board is currently developing a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment for the county. The aim of the assessment is to set out the current pharmaceutical services available, identify any gaps in services and make recommendations on future development. Once finalised, it will be used to help make decisions about commissioning pharmacies and pharmaceutical services in Rutland.
