Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) 2018-21

From 1 April 2013, every Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) in England has a statutory responsibility to publish and keep up to date a statement of the needs for pharmaceutical services of the population in its area, referred to as a Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA).

Every 3 years we work with our partners (through the Health and Wellbeing Board) to produce a PNA which looks at the current provision of pharmaceutical services across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and whether this meets the current and future needs of the population and identifies any potential gaps to service delivery.

The final Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2018/21, concludes that pharmacy provision across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly is suitable for residents. We have also concluded that there is sufficient capacity in the system to meet the needs of the population as it continues to grow over the next 3 years. [Please note: Pharmacy profiles listed below should be read alongside the report linked above]

If you any queries regarding the PNA please contact Linda Howarth either via email ( or telephone (01872 327830)


The pharmacy profiles below are based on Community Network Areas (CNA).  Each profile contains contact details, opening hours and maps showing location, walking and driving distances and strategy maps showing any future developments in the main towns.

There are also Community Network Area (CNA) health profiles for each area and further socio-demographic information can be obtained by accessing the Community Profiles.

All previous versions of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Pharmaceutical Needs Assessments are available using the link below:
