Please let us know what you think about our draft pharmaceutical needs assessment for North Somerset

Please read the draft assessment and give us your thoughts using the online questionnaire provided. All the materials are on the website of South Gloucestershire council who are kindly hosting this for the three areas concerned (Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset). If you are answering about pharmacies in North Somerset pick 'North Somerset' at question 1. The questionnaire is designed to be fully accessible but if you would like it (or the draft PNA) in another format, please contact Jon Roberts by email or by phone on 01275 855 5256. 

The PNA uses information from a range of sources to assess whether residents in North Somerset have reasonable access to the essential services provided by pharmacies (chemists) which are the dispensing of medicines. If there are areas where there are gaps in the current or likely gaps in the future provision of pharmacies in North Somerset, the PNA aims to highlight these.
