Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2018
Redcar & Cleveland Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) published its second Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) on 22 March 2018. The PNA includes a description of pharmaceutical services currently available from local community pharmacies and other providers, and identifies any potential for improvement or better access in the future.
The PNA is used by NHS England to guide the commissioning of pharmaceutical services in accordance with the NHS (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013 (SI 2013/349, as amended).
The PNA may also be used to inform the commissioning of services from pharmacies by Middlesbrough Council and NHS South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group.

The HWB is also required to keep the PNA up to date by:
- making a revised assessment as soon as is reasonably practicable after identifying changes to the need for pharmaceutical services which are of a significant extent
- publication of Supplementary Statements if required
- maintaining the map of pharmaceutical services
- publishing a full review by 22 March 2021
Supplementary Statements – Redcar & Cleveland HWB PNA
When changes to pharmaceutical services take place, such as opening a new pharmacy, this may be documented by the publication of a Supplementary Statement, thereby becoming part of the PNA for the area. Supplementary Statements to the PNA 2018 issued by Redcar & Cleveland HWB will be shown here.
