Public Health Profile

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA)

The Joint Strategic Needs Assessment has been developed jointly by a range of partners that all have an interest in understanding the multiple overlapping needs of our children, young people, adults and older people. The JSNA helps us to understand the key issues we face in improving the health and wellbeing of our population. Going forward this will become a live document, shared with partners and embedded within individual performance management arrangements to ensure that it informs practice and commissioning priorities.

Public Health Needs Assessments

Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) 2018

Middlesbrough Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB) published its second Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) on 22 March 2018. The PNA includes a description of pharmaceutical services currently available from local community pharmacies and other providers, and identifies any potential for improvement or better access in the future.

The PNA is used by NHS England to guide the commissioning of pharmaceutical services in accordance with the NHS (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013 (SI 2013/349, as amended).

The PNA may also be used to inform the commissioning of services from pharmacies by Middlesbrough Council and NHS South Tees Clinical Commissioning Group. 

View the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment 2018 (PDF).

The HWB is also required to keep the PNA up to date by:

  • making a revised assessment as soon as is reasonably practicable after identifying changes to the need for pharmaceutical services which are of a significant extent 
  • publication of Supplementary Statements if required 
  • maintaining the map of pharmaceutical services 
  • publishing a full review by 22 March 2021 

Supplementary Statements - Middlesbrough HWB PNA

When changes to pharmaceutical services take place, such as opening a new pharmacy, this may be documented by the publication of a Supplementary Statement, thereby becoming part of the PNA for the area. Supplementary Statements to the PNA 2018 issued by Middlesbrough HWB will be shown here.

Map of pharmacies in the Middlesbrough HWB area

A map of pharmacy premises in the Middlesbrough HWB area is included in the PNA 2018. Should there be any change to the map, this will be published here.

​Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy

The strategy provides the overarching vision and strategic framework for improving health and wellbeing and tackling health inequalities in Middlesbrough and responds to the priorities identified in the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA). It also considers wider issues affecting health such as housing, education and the environment.
