West Yorkshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment Survey 2022

Closing date for submissons is 13 February 2022.

The Kirklees Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) 2022 is part of the planning for health and social care in Kirklees and West Yorkshire. It is an assessment of the needs for local pharmaceutical services, which is used by NHS England, the Clinical Commissioning Group and the local authority to help decide if new pharmacies should be opened in a particular area.

To help with the assessment we want people who live in West Yorkshire to have their say on the use, availability and accessibility of pharmacies and related services.
