Someone filling in a questionnaire


 Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2018

Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire



South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bristol Health & Wellbeing Boards are hosted by their respective local authorities. The government requires all Health & Wellbeing Boards to produce an assessment of pharmaceutical services in its area at least every three years; the last pharmaceutical needs assessment took place in 2014.


In this consultation we share the draft version of the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment documents for all three local authorities, and we would like to hear your views on pharmaceutical services in your area.


What are pharmaceutical services?

Pharmaceutical services are many of the services currently provided under the NHS by community pharmacies, and include:

  • The dispensing of medicines and appliances on prescription
  • The sale of medicines to the public
  • Providing advice to the public on medicines or managing illness
  • Receiving waste medicines for safe destruction

Some pharmaceutical services may be provided by dispensing GP practices, or dispensing appliance contractors.


This consultation is open between Monday 4th September 2017 until Monday 27th November 2017

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.
