Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment. 1st February 2011
The Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) presents a picture of community pharmacies and dispensing services in Oxfordshire, reviewing both access and services currently provided and how these could be utilised further. Community pharmacies can support the health and well-being of the population of Oxfordshire in partnership with our community services and GP practices. Services can be directed towards addressing health inequalities and supporting self-care in areas of greatest need, so a mapping of service provision and identifying gaps in demand are essential to afford NHS Oxfordshire the market intelligence it needs to take forward appropriate and cost-effective commissioning of services.
