PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

1 Foreword The White paper, Equity and Excellence : Liberating the NHS, published in 2010 sets out the long term vision for the future of the NHS. This Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) provides the base from which to deliver some of the aspirations of the white paper e.g. continuous service improvements through evidence based commissioning using local needs assessments and to promote integration of community pharmacy and GP led commissioning by providing the intelligence to make informed decisions on the future commissioning and provision of pharmacy services. NHS Kirklees has a statutory duty to carry out and publish a PNA. Working with representatives of community pharmacy contractors we will use this assessment to develop NHS pharmaceutical services and plan for the years ahead. There are 93 pharmacies across Kirklees of which 38 (40%) are independent contractors and the remaining are part of large chains. There are 72 general practices, 17 having branch surgeries with a total of 267 family doctors. We have 59 dental practices, and 46 opticians (plus 25 others who provide services to patients in their own homes), as well as hospitals within the Kirklees boundaries. An important part of our job is to develop and work in partnership with other key statutory stakeholders including Kirklees Council, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust and the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. Other partners include the community and voluntary sector. We are all working together to make sure the health services you need are right for you. The PNA will be used as a tool in ensuring that all future commissioning decisions for the provision of pharmaceutical services meet the pharmaceutical and relevant health needs of the Kirklees population. It will inform both commissioning of pharmaceutical services and decisions on new pharmacy contract applications. The PNA and Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) are closely aligned and future strategic responsibility for these documents is likely to sit with the Health and Well-being Board. The PNA will be regularly reviewed and updated by the appropriate authorised statutory body. The document has been fully consulted on as required by the regulations. A consultation report and equality impact assessment are published alongside this PNA. All documents are available on the NHS Kirklees website www.kirklees.nhs.uk/public-information/publications/reviews-and-assessments/. NB The contents of this publication were accurate as of 30 November 2010.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


2 Purpose and how to use this PNA What is a PNA? Section 128A of the NHS Act 20061 requires Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) like NHS Kirklees to assess the pharmaceutical needs for its area and to publish a statement of its assessment and of any revised assessment. Termed Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA), the National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services) Amendment Regulations SI 2010/914 outline the minimum information to be contained in a PNA and the process to be followed for its development. This document sets out the pharmaceutical needs of our local population both now and in the immediate future in accordance with these aforementioned regulations. Community pharmacies provide people with access to medicines in a variety of ways without an appointment. In addition they offer a range of other services which promote self care and help people to use medicines safely and effectively. Patients are free to choose which community pharmacy to go to and do not need to be a registered patient of the pharmacy. In this document we will tell you how we will make sure all local people have equal access to community pharmacy services and how we will commission and develop future community pharmacy services. The aim of a PNA is to enable NHS Kirklees and our stakeholders to understand the pharmaceutical needs of our local population and to help us plan future services. This PNA will require a fundamental review every three years. However where there is a change to the availability of services following the publication of this PNA that could have an impact on the determination of an application, a supplementary statement will be issued. The objectives of this PNA are: • To support a robust decision making process for applications for NHS community pharmacy contracts within NHS Kirklees • To have a clear picture of the current services provided by community pharmacies and identify gaps in service provision in relation to NHS pharmaceutical services • To be able to plan for future services to be delivered by community pharmacy and make sure that any gaps in services are addressed • To make sure reasonable choices of pharmaceutical services are available for the people of Kirklees • To stipulate the range of directed enhanced services expected from community pharmacies entering the pharmaceutical list under the exempt category within the ‘Control of Entry’ Regulations 2005, (e.g. 100 hour pharmacies and wholly internet pharmacies)

• To stipulate the range of directed services expected from pharmacies with previously called ‘exempt’ type contracts (as per the 2005 regulations), in anticipation of additional regulations due for publication in 2011 which support the use of PNAs in determining pharmacy applications • To provide the basis for a robust commissioning process for enhanced services from community pharmacies which enables community pharmacy to fully participate in service re-design • To encourage the use of community pharmacies as a means of reducing health inequalities • To encourage multidisciplinary working between independent pharmacy contractors and other healthcare professionals. Associated policies and procedures are: • Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA 2009 and 2010)2 • Five Year Strategic Plan 2008-133

How to use this PNA The PNA should be used as a tool to help deliver World Class Commissioning competences such as delivering better health and well being for people, improving health outcomes and reducing health inequalities’.4 Equally it should be utilised as a service development tool in conjunction with the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) and the five year strategic plan, as mapping out current services and gaining a sense of future service needs will pinpoint the localities of Kirklees that need more development of pharmaceutical services. The PNA can be used by patients, current service providers, future service providers and commissioners alike in the following ways: • Maps and tables detailing specific services will mean patients can see clearly where they can access a particular service. It will also provide another source of contact details for their local pharmacies. • Current service providers will be better able to understand the unmet needs of patients in their area and take steps to address this need. • Future service providers will be able to tailor their applications to be added to the pharmaceutical list to make sure that they provide the services most needed by the local community. • Commissioners will be able to move away from the ‘one-size fits all approach’5 to make sure that pharmaceutical services are delivered in a targeted way. • The NHS Kirklees pharmacy panel or any future appointed body will be in a better position to judge new applications to join the pharmaceutical list and make sure that patients receive quality services and adequate access without plurality of supply. If you are planning on applying to join the NHS Kirklees pharmaceutical list you should use the data contained in this document to help you decide which types of services you offer. Having assessed local needs of our population and the current provision of pharmaceutical services the following statements outline how we intend to secure improvements to, or better access to, pharmaceutical services for the benefit of the population in NHS Kirklees.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


3 Executive summary Access • As demonstrated by maps A and B (pharmacy location vs deprivation indices and population density respectively) availability of pharmacies within Kirklees is adequate and necessary to meet need, with a significant number of 100 hour pharmacies supporting the required out of hour provision.

The Valleys and Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton localities are less well served by pharmacies than other localities, however the recently granted applications for new pharmacies should give better access to pharmaceutical services in these areas. More investigation of GP opening hours compared to pharmacy opening hours is needed for these localities. We will review all these issues within a year.

• There are sufficient numbers and variety of pharmacies (independent and multiples) in all localities offering patients adequate choice. • We will work with our pharmacists to make sure that there is good signposting to pharmacies where other languages are spoken and share this information with other health and social care services.

Premises and infrastructure • We will work with our pharmacists to identify ways in which private consultation facilities can be further developed and fully utilised for the benefit of our population, particularly in the north of Huddersfield. • Where the infrastructure of the pharmacy does not allow for a consultation room to be available the pharmacy will be encouraged to seek alternative methods of providing this service. • We will continue to promote better access facilities for patients with a disability across Kirklees. • Robust IT support systems and effective use of such systems will improve the efficiency of community pharmacies. We will encourage all pharmacies to improve utilisation of email transmission, internet and word processing packages without disruption to the dispensing process.

Integration • We will work with our pharmacists and GPs to create better opportunities for working together. We will focus on initiatives where there is common ground such as repeat dispensing and Medicines Use Reviews (MUR). • We will emphasise in our commissioning the importance of continuity and consistency of pharmacist provision to make sure that the experience of patients reflects our aspirations.

Essential services • We will work with our pharmacists to identify how to share best practice in undertaking interventions and dealing with pressures of work which present a barrier to activity. • More training, facilitation and sharing of good practice is needed amongst pharmacy staff to increase the regularity of provision and quality of the wider essential services i.e. public health, signposting and support for self care. • We need to use the planned introduction of EPS release 2 as a tool to increase the use of repeat dispensing (RD). This recommendation links with efforts to improve integration between pharmacists and GPs which is a prerequisite for successful implementation of this service. • We will raise awareness of the range of services available from community pharmacies such as public health advice, self care and disposal of waste medicines.

Advanced services • We will work to increase the number of sites which are accredited to begin providing MUR particularly in pharmacies in the north of Huddersfield and will encourage more activity across all sites. • We will work with our pharmacists to link the provision of MUR with our long term conditions strategy, particularly around patient education and improving adherence in those with long term conditions.

Enhanced services • We will make sure that commissioning of enhanced services is reflected in the activity that we see from our community pharmacies and match with areas of greatest need. • We will identify pharmacies that are successfully delivering multiple enhanced services and work with them to share best practice with other providers. • We will look at how we can use pharmacists’ willingness to provide NHS health checks, weight and pain management, disease screening and monitoring, and medicines management services for vulnerable people to support work in reducing health inequalities.

Workforce • Where new developments take place we will work with GPs, developers and community pharmacists to make sure that patients continue to have access to convenient, high quality pharmacy services. • Community pharmacies will be encouraged to raise professional standards by using opportunities to develop the skills of their staff and improve quality of services for the local population. • We will continue to make sure appropriate systems and processes are in place at community pharmacies for re-accreditation, training and clinical supervision and enhance patient safety.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


4 Background to community pharmacy contract The Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework 20056 is a three tiered service made up of: • Essential services (all pharmacies must provide) • Advanced services (pharmacists and the premises from which they operate need extra accreditation before delivery of these) • Enhanced services (commissioned locally, staff delivering these services might need extra accreditation and some services will also need accreditation of premises) Advanced and enhanced services are set out in Directions under section 127 of the NHS Act 2006 and the term ‘Directed services’ is sometimes used to describe both advanced and enhanced services.

a. Essential services include: • Dispensing

• Public health

• Clinical governance

• Repeat dispensing

• Signposting

• Waste management

• Support for self care

b. Advanced services: There are three advanced services7 within the NHS Community Pharmacy Contract; two of which were only introduced in April 2010. Community pharmacies can opt to provide any of these services as long as they meet the requirements set out in the Secretary of State Directions. Table two in section 16 shows extent of provision of advanced services across Kirklees.

Medicines use review (MUR) and prescription intervention service The first advanced service which was introduced on 1 April 2005 was the MUR and prescription intervention service. The service consists of accredited pharmacists doing structured reviews with patients on multiple medicines, particularly those who take medicines for long term conditions. The MUR process helps to establish a picture of the patient’s use of their medicines - both prescribed and non-prescribed. The aim of the review is to help patients understand their therapy and to identify any problems they are experiencing along with possible solutions. A report of the review will be provided to the patient and to their GP where there is an issue for them to consider.

In order to address local priorities, PCTs can recommend that MURs are targeted at certain patient groups. Seventy four pharmacy contractors in Kirklees have secured accreditation for their premises so that pharmacists can deliver MURs and between April 2009 and March 2010, 70 of those premises had evidence of MUR activity. The number of pharmacists who had notified NHS Kirklees that they have personal accreditation to deliver MURs during this period was 136. The dispensing GP practice in the Valleys locality undertakes Dispensing Review of Use of Medicines (DRUMs) which are not dissimilar to MURs.

Appliance use review (AUR) service AUR is the second advanced service, introduced in April 2010. AURs can be carried out by a pharmacist or a specialist nurse in the pharmacy or at the patient’s home. AURs should improve the patient’s knowledge and use of any specified appliance by: - Establishing the way the patient uses the appliance and the patient’s experience of such use; - Identifying, discussing and helping to resolve poor or ineffective use of the appliance by the patient; - Advising the patient on the safe and appropriate storage of the appliance; and - Advising the patient on the safe and proper disposal of the appliances that are used or unwanted.

Stoma appliance customisation (SAC) service SAC was the third advanced service introduced in April 2010. This service involves the customisation of stoma appliances, based on the patient’s measurements or a template. The aim of the service is to ensure proper use and comfortable fitting of the stoma appliance and to improve how long they are used for, thereby reducing waste and unnecessary patient discomfort.

c. Enhanced services: These services are commissioned locally by PCTs in response to the needs of the local population. Table two highlights current provision of commissioned enhanced services provided by community pharmacies and maps D - G identify the location of some of these services within Kirklees localities. Enhanced services currently being commissioned in NHS Kirklees include: • Sexual health services (see map D) including: - Emergency hormonal contraception

- Condom distribution - Pregnancy testing

- Chlamydia screening • Supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine (see map E) • Needle and syringe exchange (see map F) • Stop smoking services and nicotine replacement therapy (see map G) • Head lice treatment • Palliative care • Minor ailments advice (pilot scheme in parts of the Huddersfield locality)

Contract monitoring NHS Kirklees monitors the quality of pharmaceutical services through our contract monitoring process, assessing pharmacies against the standards in the national contractual framework. We do contract monitoring visits on a rolling three yearly basis to each pharmacy in Kirklees. Failure to meet any requirements within the contract is managed in line with Department of Health guidance and NHS Kirklees processes. The visits are done by the community pharmacy contract manager and clinical governance facilitator; the approach being non–threatening, professional and friendly but thorough. The aim is to make the visit as beneficial as possible for both parties, using the opportunity to share good practice and promote high quality service provision. Feedback is given at the end of the visit and reports of the visit, with agreed action plans, are sent back to the pharmacy. The dispensing doctor is similarly monitored via the dispensing services quality scheme (DSQS).

5 Who provides services to NHS Kirklees? NHS Kirklees is committed to commissioning services from providers who are best placed to deliver the needs of our patients and population.

Current position NHS Kirklees contracts mainly with two acute trusts, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, although we also commission significant activity from Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. In addition to these local services, residents of Kirklees can receive care from over 200 other acute NHS service providers across England, Scotland and Wales, either as a result of specialised care or the application of patient choice. For specialised services, it is important that patients can receive their care within reasonable travelling distances and accordingly most of our residents receive specialised care from one of the three main tertiary providers within the region: Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust. Some residents will also travel further afield for highly specialised services (e.g. services for children provided by Great Ormond Street Hospital). For mental health services, NHS Kirklees contracts mainly with South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, with some specialist services being provided from a range of other organisations. Emergency ambulance services are commissioned by NHS Kirklees from Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, which is the sole provider to the majority of PCTs in the region. NHS Kirklees’ current main providers of general community services (eg district nursing, health visiting, contraception and sexual health services) are Kirklees Community Healthcare Services (KCHS) and Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. Some services are also provided by The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, Kirklees Council, South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and a broad spread of other providers, including voluntary and third sector organisations, for one or more specific services. Other primary care services are provided by local independent providers of general medical, general dental, pharmaceutical and optical services. NHS Kirklees has procured a GP equitable access centre, The School House Practice, which is based within Dewsbury Health Centre in the Dewsbury locality and is open for patients who are not registered at School House Practice every day of the year; from 12pm to 8pm, Monday to Friday and from 8am to 8pm Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. In addition there is North Kirklees Walk-in Centre on the Dewsbury and District Hospital site which is open Monday to Friday from 9am - 6.30pm.

6 Populations now and in the future Kirklees comprises a mix of urban communities and rural areas. The total population at the start of 2010 was approximately 429,106. By 2025 the population is predicted to increase by 6% to nearly 455,000. Nationally, 40% of the population is forecast to be over the age of 50 by 2026,8 therefore the ageing population needs to be considered by all health and local council services. Currently nearly one in four of the Kirklees population is aged less than 19 years. Half the population is of working age and just below one in seven (15%) are aged over 65 years. By 2025 the proportion in the working age group will have reduced and those aged over 65 will have increased to nearly one in five (20%) as people live longer than before. The increase in those aged over 65 includes a large increase (96%) in the proportion living more than 85 years - these are the people most likely to have complex health and social care needs.9 Children under 12 years old form 15% of the total population. The north of Kirklees has a larger proportion of their population of younger age than in the south of Kirklees.

Deprivation According to the Index of Deprivation (ID) 2007, Kirklees ranked as the eighty second most deprived local authority out of 354 in England. Just over 120,000 Kirklees residents (all ages), nearly one in four, lived within the top 20% worst deprived areas, identified from the national ranking of LSOAs (Lower Super Output Areas) by ID 2007 deprivation score. The pattern of deprivation across Kirklees is not evenly distributed, with some localities experiencing higher levels of deprivation than others. Dewsbury had the highest levels of deprivation with 60% of its resident population living within the 20% most deprived areas. Huddersfield and Batley, Birstall & Birkenshaw had 39% and 37% of its residents respectively living in the 20% most deprived areas. These levels of deprivation contrast significantly with the other three localities where the proportion of residents living in the 20% most deprived areas is much lower. These are Mirfield, Denby Dale & Kirkburton, Spen Valley and The Valleys which, respectively, have 14%, 13% and 5% of their residents living in the 20% most deprived areas.

Life expectancy Life expectancy at birth in Kirklees is improving but remains below the national average, significantly so for women. Male life expectancy at birth in 2010 was 77.3 years and female 80.9 years. There are differences across the localities with life expectancy in Dewsbury significantly below the national rate for both men and women. Men in Dewsbury can expect to live nearly five years less than men in the Holme Valley, whilst women in Batley can expect to live four years less than women in the Holme Valley. Infant mortality remains higher than the national rate, particularly in the north of Kirklees.

Health status The health of people in Kirklees is generally worse than the national average. Deaths from heart disease, stroke and cancers in those aged under 75 years remain slightly worse than the averages for England, but are improving. Long term condition management has improved locally and remains a focus given the increasing proportion of those living with these conditions. High infant mortality, particularly in the north of Kirklees has led to a focus on the personal behaviours of women of child bearing age. These women often have more influence on family behaviours, and can focus on eating a healthier diet and being physically active. Smoking levels in Kirklees remain too high and obesity is an area of increasing concern for both children and adults.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


7 Key issues identified for improving health and well-being inequalities The aim of a JSNA is to describe the future health and well being needs of local groups of people to inform the strategic direction of service delivery and redesign to meet those needs. It also includes identifying inequalities i.e. those most at risk or in need due to factors that can be avoided or changed. The JSNA in 2009 identified the key priorities which had the main impact on local people. These remain similar to the previous JSNA in 2008 and continue to apply in the 2010 JSNA. Priorities are broken down into issues, specific groups of people and localities most in need. Community pharmacy can play a role in helping to deliver on some of these key priorities.

Specific vulnerable groups:

Conditions:

• Women of child bearing age: their personal behaviours

• Heart disease and stroke

• Pain

• People with disabilities

• Emotional well-being

• Diabetes

• Older people

• Obesity • Dementia

Personal behaviours: • Smoking

• Alcohol

• Food and nutrition

• Sexual health

• Physical activity Priorities in bold italics above are key issues identified within the JSNA for both adults and children and young people alike. Currently the only enhanced service delivered in community pharmacies across Kirklees that relates to children and young people is the community pharmacy sexual health scheme which gives access to advice and treatment to those aged 13 and over. Consideration needs to be taken as to whether a community pharmacy setting is equally appropriate for other types of services that children and young people might benefit from.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

13


Services for adults within NHS Kirklees that are currently provided by community pharmacies and fit in with the JSNA priorities include: • A requirement to comply with the Disability Discriminations Act (DDA) 1995 ‘to make reasonable adjustments to their services and provide auxiliary aids where appropriate for people with disabilities.’10 • Stop smoking services and free access to nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) for those who do not pay for prescriptions. • Sexual health services that include: - Access to free emergency hormonal contraception (EHC) - Chlamydia testing - Pregnancy testing - Access to free condoms • A requirement to take part in up to six public health campaigns per annum that cover a range of topics including: - Stop smoking - Obesity - Heart disease - Physical activity - Breast feeding awareness - Healthy eating - Diabetes In the Huddersfield locality there is also a minor ailments pilot scheme which is being reviewed in Dec 2010-Jan 2011, results of which will determine the future of the scheme and its potential roll out.

Other health and well-being inequalities for adults in Kirklees There are currently other services that community pharmacies provide, for conditions and specific vulnerable groups that have not been highlighted as key priorities in the JSNA but are identified key PCT priorities. These include the following: • Access to free head lice treatment • Supervised consumption schemes for methadone and buprenorphine • Needle and syringe exchange schemes for substance misusers • Disposal of waste medicines – helping to reduce the number of accidental poisonings in the home. • Access to palliative care medicines – (scheme guarantees stocks of certain palliative care drugs always being available in participating pharmacies)

8 Current pharmaceutical service provision in primary care Map A shows the spread of pharmacies (including the only GP dispensing practice) within Kirklees against a background showing deprivation index of the population. Map B highlights the position of pharmacies vs population density in Kirklees. There are 93 pharmacies in Kirklees, all commissioned via the national contractual framework. These pharmacies dispense prescriptions which have mainly been generated from the 72 general practices and 59 dental practices in the area. A range of other essential services are provided and they also have the option of providing advanced and enhanced services under their contractual framework. See section 4 Background to community pharmacy contract. A key part of their role is the provision of advice to members of the public. In England 84% of adults, (78% for health-related reasons) visit a pharmacy at least once a year, with the average number of visits per adult user being 16 per year. Women, those aged over 35 and those with a long term health condition or disability are the most frequent users.11 Of the 93 pharmacies, 14 are exempt category pharmacies - one being a wholly internet pharmacy, another is an out of town shopping development pharmacy and 12 are 100 hour pharmacies. The rest are standard 40 hour contract pharmacies. NHS Kirklees also has one dispensing GP practice within its boundary – situated in The Valleys locality. Some Kirklees people will go to pharmacies just outside the Kirklees border, provided by neighbouring PCTs (Calderdale, Bradford and Airedale, Leeds, Wakefield district, Barnsley, Oldham and Derbyshire county). Analysis of prescription data for period September 09 to March 10 shows that 82,961 (2%) of Kirklees prescriptions are dispensed by dispensers outside Kirklees borders. The majority are dispensed by appliance contractors. Other providers of primary care pharmaceutical services include:

• Dispensing Appliance Contractors (DACs)

NHS Kirklees patients can access supplies of appliances from a range of appliance contractors who are based outside our boundaries and also from our local community pharmacies. A total of 34,201 appliance items were dispensed by 37 appliance companies based outside of Kirklees in 2009/10. Over 90% of these items were supplied by just 14 of the 37 companies.

Community pharmacies within Kirklees also supply some appliances. Since April 2010 community pharmacists are able to provide AUR and SAC services. By July 2010 three Kirklees community pharmacy contractors had declared an intention to provide both the AUR and SAC services, with an additional pharmacy providing just the SAC service.

There is nothing to suggest that provision of appliances to patients of NHS Kirklees is inadequate.

• Wholly internet/mail order pharmacies

Patients are at liberty to use any available registered internet pharmacy to dispense their prescriptions and do so regardless of where the pharmacy is based.

The northern part of Huddersfield locality contains the only wholly internet pharmacy we have in Kirklees, however there are other wholly internet pharmacies outside the boundaries of Kirklees which are used by some NHS Kirklees registered patients. In addition some local Kirklees pharmacies offer a mail order service.

Miscellaneous • KCHS manage some services that are able to supply medicines to patients. These include the North Kirklees Walk-in Centre based at Dewsbury and District Hospital. They can supply some take home medicines to patients using the patient group direction (PGD) or non medical prescribing supply route. Likewise medicines are supplied to patients treated at the Moorfield Primary Care Centre, Princess Royal Community Health Centre and Holme Valley Memorial Hospital, Batley Health Centre, Dewsbury Health Centre, Cleckheaton Health Centre, Thornton Lodge and Chestnut Centre. • Supplies of some medicines are made from substance misuse service providers such as Huddersfield Lifeline and Dewsbury Lifeline. In addition our Out of Hours provider Local Care Direct can also make supplies of medicines to patients where necessary.

Pharmacy facilities Opening hours Each locality has access to pharmacy services from Monday to Saturday. Apart from The Valleys and Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton localities all have some provision on Sundays. See table below.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Travel to pharmacies Nationally, community pharmacies are easily accessible. 99% of the population, even those living in the most deprived areas, can get to a pharmacy within 20 minutes by car and 96% by walking or using public transport.12 The position in Kirklees is demonstrated in the table below. 86% of the population can walk to their nearest pharmacy in less than 20 minutes; the average walking time being just under 12 minutes. Analysis showed that the furthest distance from a pharmacy was 4.7 miles, and that was in a remote part of the Holme Valley (top of Holme Moss). Some populations in Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton had the longest walking time at 22 minutes. However the opening of a new pharmacy in Denby Dale in July 2010 has shortened the walking time for many of those affected considerably. 100% of our population can reach a pharmacy within 20 minutes by car.

The following information was obtained from a questionnaire sent out to all community pharmacies and GP dispensing practice in May 2010. Responses were received from 83 out of 92 Kirklees pharmacies and the GP dispensing practice.

Access Seventy community pharmacies and the dispensing practice report that customers can legally park within 50 metres of the store and the bus stop is less than five minutes walking distance from the shop. Forty five community pharmacies plus the dispensing practice reported the entrance to their premises was suitable for unaided wheelchair access with an additional 20 reporting alternative facilities e.g. availability of a door buzzer. Fifty seven community pharmacies and the dispensing practice report their consultation area is accessible to wheelchair users.

Consultation areas Sixty seven community pharmacies report that they have accredited consultation areas suitable for MUR services with 44 being suitable for diagnostic services (as they include washing facilities) and have a table for writing or examining medicines/products. A further 10 are planning on installing a consultation room by April 2012. This puts pharmacies in a good position to undertake current or any new enhanced services that might be commissioned in the future.

Information technology (IT) Sixty four community pharmacies report they can regularly access internet, e-mail and use word processing packages without disrupting the dispensary process and 70 have a printer which can print A4 size paper. Sixty six pharmacies access emails at least once a day but only 11 have systems which automatically make them aware that mail is waiting. There is a lot of work to be done to make sure pharmacies use IT systems more effectively, as this will significantly ease communication difficulties currently experienced between PCT staff and pharmacy contractors during times of emergency/crisis, e.g. flu pandemic. All pharmacies need to have IT systems in place to be ready for electronic transmission of prescription (ETP). Ninety two of our pharmacies have an EPS Release 1 compliant system and N3 connectivity. The remaining pharmacy is expected to be compliant by spring 2011. NHS Kirklees has applied to be part of the third wave roll-out of EPS 2 which means that from summer 2011 prescribers may be able to prescribe electronically and transmit prescriptions directly to the pharmacy nominated by the patient, with no need to produce paper prescriptions. The PCT plans to roll out implementation of EPS release 2 in a phased manner ensuring adequate training of staff and appropriate communication and education of patients. The new system is not mandatory and will be another option open to patients which could help with management of their repeat prescriptions.

Human resources Eighteen pharmacies report that they normally have two pharmacists on duty at some time during the week. Duties of the second pharmacist are mainly to give additional support to the dispensary or relieve a pharmacist for administration work. Some check monitored dosage systems and a few provide additional services such as medication reviews. From the 68 pharmacy questionnaire responses the following mean averages of staffing per pharmacy across Kirklees was calculated as follows: Pharmacist hours per week

59.36hrs

2.74

* Whole time equivalent (wte) based on 37.5 hr week There are a range of full-time and part-time dispensing assistants/technicians and medicines counter assistants working in pharmacies across Kirklees. Annual contract monitoring of pharmacies indicates that all have qualified dispensary staff and medicine counter assistant support staff that have a recognised qualification or are training. Pharmaceutical support, when it is needed, is by the use of locum pharmacists who are used regularly and usually known by the managing pharmacist. The skill mix employed by some pharmacy contractors shows that there is a strong commitment to the development of the pharmacy workforce that will be better able to support the services being delivered under the new contract.

Multi-cultural Post the formal consultation out of 93 responses received there are 60 pharmacies plus the dispensing practice that have staff members who speak a second language. Of these, the most common languages spoken are Urdu (54 pharmacies) and Punjabi (50 pharmacies) with Gujarati spoken in 19 pharmacies. It is encouraging to note that the areas with high South Asian populations do have pharmacies with staff that speak relevant languages. Other languages spoken by staff include French (4), Swahili (3), Pahari-Potowari (9), Hindi (2) and two have British Sign Language skills.

Locality summaries Localities are operational areas used by public organisations within Kirklees. Kirklees has recently aligned its area committees to become six town and valley committees as listed below. These will also form the basis for locality working in future and so pharmacy activity should embrace this change. By aligning NHS Kirklees, local council and other key partners we can operate together more effectively, driving service development in all localities. The three goals of locality working are 13 • Better common understanding of place and priorities within each locality • Better and more co-ordinated engagement of residents and NHS Kirklees in developing responsive, locally sensitive services and investment to shape those places • Services and partners working better together to improve life for residents.

On the following pages is a summary of the population and health statistics from our most recent JSNA together with pharmaceutical service provision for each locality in Kirklees. Areas of potential pharmaceutical need are mentioned and gaps are identified for each locality.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Nearly 55,000 people lived in Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw in 2009. One in four was of South Asian origin, and tended to be younger people. Batley had a high proportion of young people (aged under 19), and a significantly higher proportion of South Asian origin than across Kirklees. Conversely Birstall and Birkenshaw had fewer young people and significantly less of South Asian origin. The birth rate in Batley was the highest in Kirklees and half of them were to women of South Asian origin – the highest proportion in Kirklees. Batley also had a higher proportion of its population aged under 45 than other parts of Kirklees, and the highest proportion of adults of South Asian origin. Birstall and Birkenshaw had a higher proportion of its population aged over 45 than other parts of Kirklees, few of them of South Asian origin.

Batley Issues relating to children/young adults

Potential need for services

Batley had a higher rate of teenage pregnancies than the local or national average. Fourteen year olds having sex also had a poor use of contraception.

Currently there is one pharmacy delivering sexual health services in Batley. This is not enough to meet the needs identified in the JSNA.

In this locality there were high levels of alcohol Alcohol treatment services could be introduced into consumption in 14 year olds. Just under a quarter community pharmacies in this locality to help tackle drank alcohol weekly. Drinking alone and being out the problem. of control from drinking alcohol was worst in Batley. The incidence of asthma in this locality was worse than elsewhere in Kirklees. In Batley one in five young people had asthma. The locality also had one of the highest rates of adult smokers and a higher number of young people who were happy to continue smoking. More young people in Batley live with a smoker than the Kirklees average.

Whilst there are significant numbers of pharmacies providing stop smoking services in this locality refocusing some of these services to specialise in stop smoking services for young people should be considered.

The level of recommended physical activity in Batley Weight management services delivered by was lower than other areas and levels of inactivity pharmacies, aimed at young people should be had increased. considered in the future. Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

Adults in Batley, particularly those aged under 65 years, experienced more episodes of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke than other areas of Kirklees.

Introduction of services that will either help to reduce the incidences of these diseases in this locality by increasing early identification of affected patients or better management of existing patient’s treatment would be useful. NHS health checks from pharmacies might be particularly helpful.

Smoking levels remain high particularly in women of child bearing age.

A re-focusing of some of the existing stop smoking services towards specialist treatment for pregnant women would be appropriate.

Alcohol consumption amongst men and women in Batley remains a concern.

Given that there are similar concerns for children and young people in this locality it might be appropriate to increase range of alcohol treatment services to these patients.

Half the adult population are overweight or obese.

Greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions and weight management services.

Community pharmacy services provided in this locality There are 12 pharmacies in the Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw locality. Ten pharmacies provide MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 2266 MURs undertaken). Twenty nine pharmacists are accredited to provide MURs (although not all are). See tables on page 24 and 25 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality is served well with pharmacies having 22 pharmacies per 100,000 population and availability of early and late closing including weekend opening on both Saturday and Sunday. The two 100 hour pharmacies adequately meet the pharmaceutical needs for out of hours services although more enhanced service provision might be necessary at some future time.

Directed services All but one pharmacy has an accredited consultation room with all but one pharmacy undertaking MURs. All currently commissioned enhanced services are available from at least one pharmacy in this locality. Stop smoking services and palliative care services offered by pharmacies adequately meet the identified needs in this locality.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


There is only one pharmacy participating in the sexual health local enhanced service (LES) and as this locality has higher prevalence of teenage pregnancy, expansion of this service into some more pharmacies when resources permit would be useful. Provision for head lice service and supervised consumption services is adequate in this locality. There is higher need for provision of needle and syringe exchange service in this locality and as there are only two pharmacies providing this service currently. More pharmacies will be required to provide this service in future when funds permit. It would be reasonable to try and place the needle and syringe services in those pharmacies currently offering the supervised consumption service. Pending the outcome of the minor ailments pilot service in the Huddersfield locality this locality could benefit from this service given its high level of deprivation. As services delivering reduction in health inequalities and responding to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision in the locality.

NHS Kirklees concludes that it is not necessary to increase the number of pharmacies in this locality. Current provision of pharmacies including the out of hours provision from the two 100 hours pharmacies is adequate and necessary to meet the populations needs. There is reasonable choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Any future granting of new developments would only serve to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in current pharmacies within this locality.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Nearly 60,000 people lived in Dewsbury in July 2009. Nearly one in three are of South Asian origin and tend to be younger people. Life expectancy at birth for men in Dewsbury was the lowest in Kirklees and two years below the national level. Life expectancy at birth for women in Dewsbury was the second lowest in Kirklees and just under two years less than nationally. Overall, Dewsbury had many health inequalities across a range of conditions, personal behaviours, living and working conditions. Dewsbury had significant levels of deprivation and health inequalities. Some of those health issues were the worst across all of Kirklees. Dewsbury had 29% of its population aged under 19, the highest in Kirklees, with half of them of South Asian origin. Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

Teenage pregnancies were higher than the average in Kirklees. Use of contraception in young people had markedly increased but one in five still did not use contraception.

Sexual health services could be further expanded into more community pharmacies.

Nearly half of all 14 year olds drinking alcohol did Alcohol treatment services could be introduced into so weekly or more. More were getting out of community pharmacies in this locality to help tackle control weekly and monthly than in Kirklees overall. the problem. One in eight 14 year olds smoke, a decrease, but still the highest in Kirklees. Of these one in five started smoking before the age of 10 and over a quarter were happy to continue smoking.

Whilst there are significant numbers of pharmacies providing stop smoking services in this locality refocusing some of these services to specialise in stop smoking services for young people is necessary.

Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

Being overweight or obese was the norm as it affected the majority of adults. The locality is also one of the least physically active.

Greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions and introduction of weight management services should be considered.

In Dewsbury there were high levels of depression coupled with feelings of being lonely.

There might be need for extra mental health services some of which could be provided by community pharmacy.

High levels of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes particularly in those under 65 exist.

Pharmacy led health checks in this locality would assist.

Half of men aged over 65 suffered pain.

Higher need for healthy lifestyle services in this locality and pain management services in community pharmacy.

Highest rates of death in Kirklees for those aged under 75 in cancers and coronary heart disease.

Greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions and screening of relevant cancers.

Smoking was the highest in Kirklees, one in four and deaths in under 75s with bronchitis and from lung cancer were also highest in Kirklees. Dewsbury also has the highest percentage of women smoking during pregnancy.

Whilst there are significant numbers of pharmacies providing stop smoking services in this locality refocusing some of these services towards specialist treatment for pregnant women is necessary.

Community pharmacy services provided in this locality There are 19 pharmacies altogether in this locality. Seventeen pharmacies are providing MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 2077 MURs undertaken). Thirty three pharmacists are accredited to provide MURs. See tables on pages 30-32 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Other provision Nurse led contraception and sexual health clinics provided in this locality • Dewsbury Health Centre • Lifeline Dewsbury

Stop smoking specialist advisors provided in this locality • Dewsbury Health Centre • Dewsbury and District Hospital (antenatal only) • Ravensthorpe Health Centre

Alcohol treatment services provided in this locality • On TRAK Dewsbury

Weight management services • Multidisciplinary team at Dewsbury District Hospital • Dietetics led programme at - Dewsbury District Hospital - Dewsbury Primary Care Centre GPs also provide stop smoking, alcohol treatment and chlamydia treatment services.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality is oversubscribed with pharmacies, having 32 pharmacies per 100,000 population compared to the average number for Kirklees being 23 and for Yorkshire and Humber region is 21. Availability of early and late closing including weekend opening on both Saturday and Sunday is very good. There are six 100 hour pharmacies in this locality which excessively meets the pharmaceutical needs for out of hours services and oversupply of pharmacy services during office hours. This locality contains the GP equitable access centre and the North Kirklees Walk in Centre therefore there is greater need for out of hours pharmaceutical services and analysis of dispensed prescriptions originating from these two establishments indicates that over 50% are dispensed by the 100 hour pharmacies.

Directed services All but one pharmacy has an accredited consultation room with only two of these not providing an MUR service. There is adequate provision of stop smoking, head lice, supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine, and palliative care services. There are only two pharmacies participating in the sexual health LES and as this locality has higher prevalence of teenage pregnancy, expansion of this service into some current pharmacies when resources permit would be useful. There is higher need for provision of needle and syringe exchange service in this locality and more pharmacies will be required to provide this service in future when funds permit. It would be reasonable to try and place the needle and syringe services in some of those pharmacies currently offering the supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine service. Pending the outcome of the minor ailments pilot service in the Huddersfield locality this locality could benefit from such a service given its high levels of deprivation.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


As services to deliver reduction in health inequalities and respond to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision.

NHS Kirklees concludes that provision of pharmacies in this locality exceeds need both for during office hours and out of hours period. Current high provision of pharmacies is not necessary but serves to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. There is extremely good choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in current pharmacies within this locality.

Huddersfield locality

34

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Huddersfield had a population of nearly 137,000 in 2009. Of these just under a fifth were of South Asian origin. The locality experienced similar health to that of Kirklees as a whole. However, it still had a number of significant health inequalities. Huddersfield had a similar proportion of young people aged under 19 compared to Kirklees as a whole, 23%. Nearly a third of them were of South Asian origin. The birth rate was also similar to Kirklees overall, with one in three of South Asian origin. Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

This locality has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy across Kirklees and well above the national rate.

Whilst pharmacies are delivering sexual health services there is a need to focus more on the needs of young people in this locality. Areas with highest rates of teenage pregnancy are lacking services and expansion should be prioritised into such areas, when resources allow.

Regular drinking amongst 14 year olds is a challenge for this locality with one in six drinking weekly or more.

Pending adequate funding, alcohol treatment services delivered by community pharmacies are to be prioritised in this locality to help tackle the problem.

Smoking amongst young people had not decreased and a quarter were happy to continue smoking.

A re-focusing of some of the existing stop smoking services towards specialist treatment for young people is appropriate.

Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

This locality experiences higher levels of diabetes than others across Kirklees particularly in those aged under 65.

Pharmacy led health checks in this locality could prove useful.

Rates of new cases of breast cancer and prostate cancer are higher than the Kirklees rate in this locality.

Greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions and screening of relevant cancers in relation to this patient population.

This locality had one of the highest rates of stroke across Kirklees.

Pharmacy led health checks could prove useful in this locality.

Rates of asthma in adults was the highest in Kirklees, particularly in those aged over 65 years.

Development of community pharmacy led asthma clinics and re–focus of MURs to this therapeutic area would be ideal.

More residents aged over 18, a third of adults, suffered pain than elsewhere in Kirklees,

Pharmacy led pain management services could be useful.

There are high rates of depression, anxiety and nervous illness in this locality.

Pharmacy led mental health services could be appropriate.

This locality has the highest rate of being either overweight or obese in women of child bearing age.

Healthier lifestyle interventions aimed at this patient group and great potential for pharmacy led weight management services as resources permit.

Over one in five adults in this locality smoke.

Need to at least double stop smoking pharmacy services in this area.

The rates of adults doing physical exercise were below the Kirklees rate.

More healthy lifestyle interventions aimed at this patient group required from Pharmacies in this locality.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

35


Community pharmacy services provided in this locality There are 34 pharmacies in this locality, one of which is a wholly internet pharmacy. Sixteen pharmacies are within the boundaries of the most deprived parts of Huddersfield. Twenty pharmacies (majority located in the south of the town, are providing MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 3288 MURs undertaken). Fifty eight pharmacists are accredited to provide MURs (but only 46 are). There is scope to improve the take up of MUR carried out in the north particularly. Twenty one pharmacies have an accredited consultation room, the majority of which are located in the south of the locality but two pharmacies in the north have a consultation room but no accreditation. See tables on pages 38-43 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Other provision Nurse led contraception and sexual health clinic provided in this locality: • New College Huddersfield • Chestnut Centre • Princess Royal Community Health Centre • Thornton Lodge Clinic • Lifeline Huddersfield

Alcohol treatment services provided in this locality • On TRAK Huddersfield

Stop smoking specialist advisors provided in this locality • Chestnut Centre • Fartown Health Centre • Huddersfield Royal Infirmary • Gateway to Care • Mill Hill Health Centre

Weight management services • Three different levels of services at Chestnut Centre • Dietetics led programme at Mill Hill Health Centre GPs also provide stop smoking, alcohol treatment and chlamydia treatment services.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality has 25 pharmacies per 100,000 population so there is adequate provision of pharmacies in this locality. The three 100hour pharmacies and an extended hour pharmacy in the northern part of the locality give good weekend and evening/early morning openings.

Directed services Accredited consultation rooms are numerous in the southern part of Huddersfield but sparse in the north of the locality. Consequently a lot less MURs are provided in the northern part of Huddersfield. More pharmacies need to get accredited consultation rooms and provide the MUR service in the north of Huddersfield. A review of the minor ailments pilot scheme taking place within this locality will determine whether this scheme will continue. Current provision adequately serves the populations need. The same is true of the palliative care service and supervised consumption scheme, but expansion of the needle and syringe exchange scheme is needed when resources permit preferably into some of those pharmacies offering the supervised consumption scheme.

36

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Smoking rates and teenage pregnancy rates are very high in this locality and more pharmacies will be encouraged to participate in stop smoking services and the sexual health scheme so as to promote even geographical coverage. As services to deliver reduction in health inequalities and respond to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision.

NHS Kirklees concludes that it is not necessary to increase the number of pharmacies in this locality. There is reasonable choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Current provision of pharmacies is adequate and necessary. Any future granting of new developments would only serve to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in pharmacies approved within this locality.

Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton

44

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Just over 52,000 people lived in Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton locality in 2009. They experienced better health than all the other localities in Kirklees, and better health than all other areas apart from Holme Valley. Many health measures were improving. Just over a fifth of its population was aged under 19, lower than Kirklees and the second lowest of all localities. It had the lowest proportion of people of South Asian origin in Kirklees. The birth rate was the lowest in Kirklees and very few births were to people of South Asian origin. The locality also had the lowest proportion of babies born with a low birth weight in Kirklees. Life expectancy at birth was one of the highest in Kirklees, for both men and women. Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

Teenage conceptions were the lowest in Kirklees but the locality had the highest number of young people reporting having had sex by 14 years and not using contraception.

More emphasis on services for sexually transmitted diseases might be necessary in those pharmacies delivering the sexual health LES.

Nearly four out of five 14 year olds had tried alcohol in this locality, but only one in 20 does so weekly.

Alcohol treatment services introduced into community pharmacies in this locality could help tackle the problem.

Fewer young people now smoke in this locality and the majority of these would like to stop.

There might be no further need for stop smoking services in this locality.

This locality had the highest number of young people who felt miserable, one in four. A third felt angry, one in five felt lonely and a quarter had sudden mood swings which is worse than for all other localities.

If this trend continues there might be need in the future for extra mental health services in the area some of which could be interventions provided by community pharmacy.

Only two in three young people are doing the recommended level of physical activity.

Potential greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions aimed at children and young people.

Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

New cases of cervical, prostate and melanoma cancers were higher than the Kirklees rate, although rates were generally reducing.

Potential greater need for healthy lifestyle interventions aimed at these diseases.

Obesity rates were lower than the Kirklees rate but half of all adults were either overweight or obese.

Community pharmacy based weight management services could support this health need.

This locality had the lowest level of smoking across Kirklees but one in eight still smoked and more than one in seven woman of child bearing age smoked.

A re-focusing of some of the existing stop smoking services towards specialist treatment for pregnant women might be appropriate.

The rates of men drinking over sensible limits had increased since 2005 (now drinking 23 units per week). Rates of binge drinking amongst men and women were higher than Kirklees average but had improved since 2005.

It might be appropriate for alcohol treatment services to be introduced into community pharmacies in this locality to help tackle the problem. A proportion of these services should be aimed at women of child bearing age.

Women of child bearing age had the highest mean consumption of alcohol per week over all of Kirklees.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Community pharmacy services provided in this locality There are currently eight community pharmacies in this locality. Seven pharmacies are providing MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 1419 MURs undertaken) and the remaining pharmacy will be providing this service shortly. Sixteen pharmacists in this locality are accredited to provide MURs. See tables on pages 47-48 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Other providers GPs also provide stop smoking, alcohol treatment and chlamydia treatment services.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality has a smaller number of community pharmacies per 100,000 population than most other localities (15 pharmacies). Availability of early and late closing including weekend opening on both Saturday and Sunday is poor. There are no 100 hour or extended hour pharmacies in this locality.

Directed services All pharmacies have an accredited consultation room and all will provide an MUR service. There is little need for supervised consumption services, particularly in the southern half of the locality which has no service at all. In the northern area - Mirfield need is still relatively low but greater than in the south of the locality. There is one pharmacy providing this service in the northern part of the locality but there are another two pharmacies situated in Dewsbury at close proximity to the border, which could also serve this population. Provision needs to increase to have at least two extra pharmacies offering this service in the Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton locality when resources allow for expansion. Requirement for needle and syringe exchange services mirror the supervised consumption services i.e. minimal need and it would be ideal for the same pharmacies to offer both services. There is full coverage of head lice service provision by all pharmacies. Availability of stop smoking and palliative care service by pharmacies is adequate due to minimal identified need. Any further expansion of these services would serve to secure improvement /access to these services but is not necessary. Rate of teenage pregnancy is very low for the northern and southern most parts of this locality however Kirkburton has a slightly higher rate (see map D). There is only one pharmacy offering the sexual health service and expansion into a few other pharmacies to give better geographical cover is necessary. This locality has lower levels of deprivation compared to most of Kirklees and therefore apart from a small pocket of need in the most northern part of the locality, the minor ailments scheme is not a priority for this locality. As services to deliver reduction in health inequalities and respond to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision. NHS Kirklees concludes that there is a gap in service provision in this locality. Opening hours need to extend into the evening on weekdays and improvements to weekend openings are required. Current provision of pharmacies is necessary to meet need; any increase in pharmacies must satisfy the extended hour and weekend opening requirement. It is hoped that current pharmacies will review their opening hours in response to this identified need. Any future granting of new developments would only serve to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. There is reasonable choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in pharmacies approved within this locality.

Spen Valley locality

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Approximately 53,000 people lived in Spen Valley in 2009. There is a small proportion of the population of South Asian origin. Spen Valley had an average proportion of young people (aged under 19), but significantly fewer young people of South Asian origin compared with Kirklees. Even so, nearly one in six were of South Asian origin. The picture of health and inequalities in Spen Valley reflected Kirklees and has changed little in the last few years, unlike many other localities which had often worsened. The exception was obesity which was the highest across Kirklees. Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

Although teenage pregnancy rates have improved, Expansion of pharmacy led sexual health services is the area still has a worse rate than Kirklees overall. required. These services might need to be better One in 10 fourteen year olds had sexual intercourse tailored to suit the needs of young people. with one in five not using contraception. Children in year six and in reception class were more likely to be obese than elsewhere in Kirklees and more likely to be overweight.

Future pharmacy led weight management services are a priority for this area.

Fourteen year olds drinking weekly or more was above the Kirklees average, but those ‘out of control’ was less than in Kirklees overall

Potential for pharmacy led alcohol treatment services.

The rate of young people smoking was better than in Kirklees overall, but a third were happy to continue smoking.

Refocusing of stop smoking services to concentrate on young people is necessary.

Emotional well being of young people in this locality particularly feeling miserable was worse than in Kirklees overall.

Potential need for pharmacy led mental health services and greater emphasis on public health campaigns.

Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

Whilst improving, lung cancer rates were still higher Greater use of healthy lifestyle interventions might than Kirklees overall, particularly for women. be appropriate. Expansion of stop smoking services Asthma rates were also higher than in Kirklees are required in this locality overall. This locality had the second worst rate of heart disease across Kirklees. Nearly half of all people aged 65 and over had high blood pressure.

Pharmacy based health checks would be an ideal development in this locality.

This locality had the highest rate of adult obesity and has risen since 2005. Women of child bearing age in this locality also had the highest levels of obesity in Kirklees. 57% of adults are either obese or overweight.

Pharmacy led weight management services should be prioritised for delivery in this locality when resources allow.

The rate of smoking remained too high with one in five continuing to smoke.

More targeted stop smoking services might be necessary, particularly towards women of child bearing age.

Nearly one in four women of child bearing age smoke and one in four non South Asian women were still smoking at the birth of their child. This locality had one of the highest rates for binge drinking in Kirklees.

Pharmacy led alcohol treatment services should be a priority for this area.

Community pharmacy services provided in this locality There are 10 community pharmacies in this locality. A small pocket of high deprivation exists on the western border of the locality neighboring Calderdale which has three pharmacies in that geographical area. Pharmacies are appropriately placed to adequately serve the deprived areas of the population. Nine pharmacies are providing MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 1550 MURs undertaken). One pharmacy has a consultation room with no accreditation. Seventeen pharmacists are accredited to provide MURs (but only 16 are). See tables on pages 53-54 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Other provision Nurse led contraception and sexual health clinics provided in this locality: • Cleckheaton Health Centre

Stop smoking specialist advisors provided in this locality • Cleckheaton Health Centre

Weight management clinics • Dietetics led programme at Cleckheaton Health Centre GPs also provide stop smoking, alcohol treatment and chlamydia treatment services.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality has 19 pharmacies per 100,000 population therefore has adequate provision of pharmacies. Availability of early and late closing including weekend opening on both Saturday and Sunday is very good. There is one 100 hour pharmacy in this locality.

Directed services All except one pharmacy has an accredited consultation room, with all of those providing a MUR service. There are five pharmacies providing a stop smoking service in the southern half of the locality which has high smoking rates but no provision in the northern part. Although smoking rates are less in the northern area, a minimum of one pharmacy would be required to provide this service when resources allow. Provision of supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine is sufficient to meet the needs of this population but more providers are required for the needle and syringe exchange scheme. Ideally both these services would run from the same pharmacies. Rates of teenage pregnancy are relatively high in this locality and expansion of the sexual health service into most pharmacies would seem appropriate when resources allow. There is full coverage of head lice service provision by all pharmacies and provision of palliative care service satisfies need. Should the minor ailment scheme be rolled out the service will need to be prioritised to providers in the few areas containing small pockets of deprivation as demonstrated on map A. As services to deliver reduction in health inequalities and respond to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision. NHS Kirklees concludes that it is not necessary to increase the number of pharmacies in this locality. Current provision of pharmacies is adequate and necessary, with opening times sufficiently satisfying need. There is reasonable choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Any future granting of new developments would only serve to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in current pharmacies within this locality. 52

The Valleys locality

56

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


The population of The Valleys was nearly 72,000 in 2009. Low levels of the population are of South Asian origin. The Valleys had an average proportion of young people (aged under 19), but significantly fewer of South Asian origin compared with Kirklees. The Colne Valley has one of the highest proportions of people of working age. Generally adults living in The Valleys had better health than adults in Kirklees overall – however it was worse than the national average in the Colne Valley. Older people were those most likely to experience poor health, which had worsened since 2005. The Holme Valley had some of the best levels of health in Kirklees, including the best life expectancy at birth for both men and women. Children and young people living in the Colne Valley experienced broadly better health than Kirklees overall. But within the locality young people had a significantly different set of issues compared with those in the Holme Valley. Generally, people living in the Holme Valley experienced broadly similar health to Kirklees overall.

Colne Valley Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

Although nearly nine out of 10, 14 year olds had tried alcohol, the area had one of the lowest rates of regular drinking in 14 year olds.

Pharmacy led alcohol treatment services, less of a priority in this locality.

Fourteen year olds smoking weekly or more was higher than in Kirklees overall.

Stop smoking services need to adapt towards supporting teenagers in this locality. Greater provision of smoking cessation enhanced service required from pharmacies.

Use of illegal drugs was highest in this area with nearly one in five having tried illegal drugs.

Public health messages on substance misuse aimed at schools should be stronger in this area. Dedicated services specifically for young people should be developed in this area

Emotional health and well being is worse than in most other areas, particularly anxiety, feeling miserable or lonely.

Potential need for pharmacy led mental health services and greater emphasis on public health campaigns.

Holme Valley Issues relating to children and young people

Potential need for services

Smoking levels were higher than other parts of Kirklees, except Batley and Dewsbury.

Dedicated services for children and young people required in this area. Greater provision of stop smoking enhanced service required from pharmacies.

Regular drinking amongst young people was higher Pharmacy led alcohol treatment services should be than elsewhere but being out of control less than prioritised in this area. elsewhere. More young people than Kirklees overall felt miserable, angry and lonely. Bullying reports are higher than elsewhere.

Greater use of healthy lifestyle interventions and potential for pharmacy led mental health interventions.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

57


The Valleys Issues relating to adults

Potential need for services

Rates of colon and prostate cancer in men were higher than in Kirklees overall, and melanomas were higher for both men and women.

Public health campaigns relating to these subjects required in this locality.

Reported levels of back pain were higher in Colne Valley than elsewhere.

Greater need for healthy lifestyle services aimed at this population and also a priority area for pharmacy led pain management services if developed.

Rates of high blood pressure, asthma and diabetes in the Colne Valley had all increased since 2005.

Pharmacy led health checks would support this issue.

Half of all adults were obese or overweight.

Pharmacy led weight management services are a priority for this area if commissioned.

In Holme Valley the emotional well being of older people had deteriorated.

Greater use of healthy lifestyle interventions and potential for pharmacy led mental health services.

One in five adults smoke at least one cigarette a day. There is particular concern in the Colne Valley.

Increase of stop smoking services in pharmacies in Colne Valley required.

More men in Holme Valley than in Kirklees drank over the sensible limit. One in three men and women binge drink over a week particularly in the Colne Valley.

Pharmacy led alcohol treatment services are a priority for this area if commissioned.

Community pharmacy services provided in this locality This locality contains 10 community pharmacies and the only dispensing doctor practice in NHS Kirklees. Seven pharmacies are providing MURs (Apr 09 - Mar 2010, 833 MURs undertaken). Fourteen pharmacists are accredited to provide MURs (but only 10 are). See tables on pages 60-61 for pharmaceutical services provided in this locality.

Other provision Weight management clinic • Golcar Health centre GPs also provide stop smoking, alcohol treatment and chlamydia treatment services.

Service gaps/pressures Access This locality has the least number of pharmacies per 100,000 population (14 pharmacies) in Kirklees however pharmacies are situated in the more populated parts of the locality – see map B. There are a significant number of potential new pharmacy applications (including 100 hour contracts) approved or pending approval by the pharmacy panel which would increase the coverage to nearer average levels for this locality. (See section 10 – future developments.) Currently there are no 100 hour or extended hour pharmacies in this locality. Nine pharmacies open on a Saturday but only one opens all day. No pharmacies open on a Sunday (however a new pharmacy has been granted permission to open in Holmfirth by April 2011 with opening hours on Monday - Friday evenings and Saturday and Sunday. Development of any of the previously mentioned 100hr applications would also improve the situation in this locality).

58

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Directed services All but two pharmacies have an accredited consultation room, the vast majority of which provide an MUR service. Provision of supervised consumption services adequately serves need although there is a gap in service for needle and syringe exchange services. Ideally both services would be provided from the same pharmacies. Provision of stop smoking services is poor in this locality and majority of pharmacies would be encouraged to offer this service so as to satisfy need. Wider participation is required on the palliative care scheme from another one or two pharmacies geographically spread across the locality. Similarly more provision is required for the sexual health enhanced service to cover those areas with higher teenage pregnancy rates that are currently lacking a service. This suggested expansion can only occur when funds are in place. Should the minor ailment scheme be rolled out the service will need to be prioritised to providers in the few areas containing small pockets of deprivation as demonstrated on map A. As services to deliver reduction in health inequalities and respond to the health needs of the population in this locality, are expanded or newly developed, relevant enhanced services within community pharmacies will be considered to form part of the overall service provision. NHS Kirklees concludes that there is a potential gap in service provision in this locality as opening hours need to extend into the evening on weekdays with improvements on weekend openings. Current provision of pharmacies is necessary to meet need; there is reasonable choice of pharmaceutical services available in this locality. Any increase in pharmacies must satisfy the extended hour and weekend opening requirement. It is anticipated that the latest run of applications for 100hour pharmacies in this locality will satisfy this gap in the very near future. Opening of at least one 100 hour pharmacy would adequately satisfy the identified need in this locality. Any future granting of new developments would only serve to secure improvements to or better access to pharmaceutical services. Any required expansion or future development of enhanced services is only necessary in community pharmacies approved within this locality.

Areas that have been reviewed in relation to rurality In the last five years, NHS Kirklees has done one review of rural locations in relation to NHS Pharmaceutical Services. This review incorporated areas within the Holme Valley where the only Kirklees GP dispensing practice is sited. This review was completed in April 2008, therefore the rurality of this area cannot be re-assessed until April 2013 as per the NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2005.

Controlled localities Currently only the area in and around Holmfirth has been clearly identified by NHS Kirklees as a controlled locality. The rural areas and urbanised areas are clearly marked on a map of the area, and includes the location of all pharmacies within the area. This map can be viewed on the NHS Kirklees website at www.kirklees.nhs.uk

9 Stakeholder views In order to make sure the PNA reflects up to date views, opinions from a range of stakeholders were sought during the development of the PNA including: patients, GPs - via the Local Medical Committee (LMC) and Practice Based Commissioning Groups/stand alones, out of hours providers, the local authority, PCT commissioners, community pharmacists as well as the LPC and the dispensing GP. Opinions were obtained using a range of methods e.g. questionnaires, letters, meetings and workshops. Please note at the time of seeking views the localities in Kirklees were slightly different to the current situation. Mirfield was coterminous with Dewsbury and Huddersfield locality was split into two separate localities; Huddersfield North and Huddersfield South.

Patient and public views Information already held by NHS Kirklees about patients experience of community pharmacy provision was reviewed. This was supplemented by a short patient questionnaire which was distributed through our patient and public involvement team and all community pharmacies. Groups receiving the questionnaire included Voluntary Action Kirklees (VAK), LINK, EPP Support Group, Readers Panel, Diabetes Reference Group, working in partnership distribution list and database of people expressing an interest to be involved in our work.

Patient Advice and Liaison Service The records of patient contact with NHS Kirklees Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) were trawled for 2008 and 2009, to establish whether there were any common themes relating to pharmacy that would need to be considered as part of the pharmaceutical needs assessment. Forty one records were identified and the key issues were: • Lack of access to pharmacies for those people living in rural areas • Being prescribed medication that was out of date • Being dispensed the wrong medication • Patient choice on where prescriptions are dispensed • Not being dispensed the full prescription and having to go back a second time to collect the remainder of the prescription

Complaints Complaints made to NHS Kirklees during 2008 and 2009 were reviewed to find out whether there were any issues of relevance to the PNA that had been the subject of a formal complaint. During the past two years 2008 and 2009 a combined total of 11 complaints were received. Issues included: • Marketing strategies used by new pharmacists to recruit new patients to their service • Being dispensed the wrong medication • Being prescribed medication that was out of date • Not being dispensed the full prescription and having to go back a second time to collect the remainder of the prescription

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Annual patient satisfaction survey Pharmacies must undertake a patient satisfaction survey annually. The aim of the survey is to understand the main areas where the pharmacy is performing well and the main areas in need of improvement. Analyses of patient surveys for 2008/09 highlight that the top areas where pharmacies are performing well are: politeness and accessibility of staff, service from the pharmacist and overall rating of the staff. The areas most in need of improvement are: promotion of healthy lifestyle advice, including increasing physical exercise, healthy eating and stopping smoking. The results of the survey should positively inform pharmacies on how to improve their service. • Strong points indicate that patients are particularly pleased with the service received from staff and the fact that they are available and accessible for consultation. • Some pharmacists are obviously having difficulty being pro-active with the public health aspect of their role. This is an area where sharing of successes and good practice would be beneficial. • More pharmacies (now 75) have a consultation area and pharmacies should be well signposted so the public are able to make full use of this facility. Pharmacies without a consultation room should consider how they can offer customers privacy during a conversation. • Problems with disposal of medicines are a cause for concern in case this leads to medicines being discarded in a non-approved manner. This is an essential service which is offered by every pharmacy. The public need more education around correct disposal of medicines, and the service offered by community pharmacists need to be better publicised.

PNA patient questionnaire A short patient questionnaire was distributed through our Patient and Public Involvement Team and all community pharmacies in April 2010. A total of 305 completed questionnaires were received. The questionnaire looked at two main areas, the services people currently use and the services that they would like to see available at their pharmacy. A summary of responses is provided below. Pharmacies are well used across Kirklees in all localities with most responders (90-100% per locality) claiming to use the same pharmacy all or most of the time and on average over three quarters of responders visit their pharmacy more than six times a year. In the main, the most used services on a regular or occasional basis were: • Dispensing of acute and repeat prescriptions • Purchasing over the counter medicines • Seeking advice on medicines • Disposal of old or unwanted medicines. Most enhanced services were used to a smaller degree in all localities. There were differences reported in the use of the MUR service across localities, the highest use reported was in Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw where 45% of responders reported occasionally sitting down with their pharmacist to discuss how to use their medicines. On the other hand no responders in Huddersfield North reported using this service. In the remaining localities approximately one third of responders reported occasionally using this service. Home delivery services are not part of the NHS pharmaceutical terms of service and are provided by pharmacies as a business enhancement and added value service to patients. Responders from all localities reported using this service, with 100% of Huddersfield North responders using this service (possibly an explanation for the absence of responders using MUR service in this locality?). On average the home delivery service was used by about 40% to 50% of responders in the remaining localities. When asked about what future services patients might like to see provided in their pharmacies; of the options suggested the most favoured services for all localities without exception were: • NHS health checks • Services for pain management • Weight management services • Vaccination services

Anticoagulation monitoring was the next most favoured meaning that alcohol brief interventions and chlamydia treatment were the publics’ least favoured services for future development. Overall, NHS health checks (including blood pressure monitoring, diabetes testing, cholesterol monitoring and spirometry testing) was the most popular service identified by patients and the public for future development. Patients were asked to give additional views on pharmaceutical services in their area. The main themes included: • Customer service Customer service was important to patients as was the availability of a confidential area for consultations. In all localities patients were very satisfied with the service they received from pharmacies, emphasising the professional, helpful and caring nature of staff.

A small minority of patients expressed dissatisfaction with the level of service from their local pharmacy in terms of poor staff attitude and out of stock medicines (Holmfirth area) and closing times (Mirfield area).

• Access Patients felt pharmacies were conveniently located and more accessible than GP surgeries. There was suggestion that longer opening hours were needed in The Valleys. Apart from Denby Dale village, no-one living in Kirklees expressed a need for more pharmacies in any of the localities however longer opening hours were sought in Mirfield and Saturday opening of existing pharmacies in some rural villages. • Provision of additional services Patients in all localities were keen to have additional services provided in their local pharmacies because of their accessibility but there was a concern about their capacity to deliver such services because of manpower and time constraints and lack of confidence in counter staffs ability to carry out such duties. There was also fear of duplicating services between GPs and pharmacists and wasting resources. • Miscellaneous There seemed to be a general lack of knowledge amongst the public about what services community pharmacists could offer outside of the standard dispensing and over the counter medicines sales. More publicity was felt to be needed on the range of services offered by community pharmacies. Interest in extending the Minor Ailments Scheme currently running as a pilot in parts of Huddersfield was mentioned more than once by patients from several localities.

GP and commissioner views The LMC and PBCs were sent a letter asking for their views on local pharmaceutical services. In addition a workshop was held with PBC representatives and a meeting with LMC to explain the background to the PNA and get views on current services and future pharmaceutical provision in Kirklees. PCT commissioners were also asked to forward their opinions. Feedback was as follows:

PBC consortia and GP practices in north of Kirklees Covering localities of - Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw - Dewsbury and Mirfield - Spen Valley Services which could be usefully provided by community pharmacists included: • Clinical medication review • Care homes management service (but not duplicating GP role) • Introduction of electronic prescription service was seen as having great potential to stream line the repeat dispensing process for GPs.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


When considering the health needs of their population it was felt that: • Chlamydia screening was a useful enhanced service as community pharmacists were more likely to capture teenagers who would find a drop in arrangement for accessing health care more attractive • Weight management services particularly for diabetics and those with chronic heart disease were also felt to be a worthwhile service development in community pharmacies. Availability/access of community pharmacies was also considered. It was felt that in Mirfield, community pharmacies did not stay open for long enough and although provision of pharmacies was ample there was lack of competitive choice in that area. Provision in the remaining localities of North Kirklees was felt to be good.

PBC consortia and GP practices in South of Kirklees Covering localities of - The Valleys - Denby Dale and Kirkburton - Huddersfield South - Huddersfield North Key messages and overall views • Use contract payments to avoid pharmacy services providers using default “Go see your GP” when they commence the provision and are not able to complete all aspects of a service • Use social marketing (sic) to publicise any services being provided by pharmacists in order to make sure they are fully utilised (possibly with pharmacists paying for this advertising to increase their market share). • Make sure national level evidence (when available) is integral to all accreditation criteria for practitioners delivering pharmacy services. • Concern that expanding pharmaceutical services might lead to duplication of services already covered by GPs and that a holistic view must be taken when redesigning new services and pathways. • Consideration should be given to pharmacies hosting services provided by a PCT employed practitioner who delivers the services, so they can access NHS infrastructure to deal with follow up interventions. Overall the PNA was welcomed as a means of identifying potential over-provision or under-utilisation perhaps giving NHS Kirklees scope to re-assess provision of enhanced services from all professional groups and re-commission as appropriate or necessary for a particular geographical area. It would provide an opportunity to direct resources to areas of most need, improving access and increasing use of pharmacist’s skills. Services identified that could be provided by pharmacies included: • Minor ailment (some provision by practices now, but a pharmacist could do it all) • Mental health services for young people (i.e. peer support) but this needs integrating with the children’s services’ initiative • Explaining / training patients on the use of medication to improve concordance • Low level mental health problems (with clear strategies to identify and refer on those beyond their ability) • Out of hours access for basic health advice and minor ailment treatments • Stop smoking advice • Heart failure and hypertension monitoring (with strict criteria agreed by GPs / Medical Specialists) • Chlamydia screening (as per the current national protocol) • More emphasis is needed on counselling patients about inhaler use and reviewing technique as this should improve compliance and effectiveness of treatments given to asthmatic patients • Opportunistic lung function testing to find undiagnosed patients

Local authority views A particular issue raised by the local authority was the need for an improved medicine management system to be in place for frail, vulnerable people supported in their own homes and especially for those with dementia. The number of people with some form of dementia will increase as the population over 65 increases, resulting in a growing number of people who will need support to manage their medication. Therefore commissioning arrangements would need to be in place for local pharmacists to do assessments and provide individualised medicine support as required for this at risk group. As a key part of the local authority and NHS Kirklees shared approach to avoiding hospital admission / speeding up discharge, consideration of commissioning such services in the future would be important.

Urgent care provider view Out of hours (OOH) services are currently provided by NHS Direct, and Local Care Direct (LCD) under a new contract agreement from April 2009. LCD felt that pharmaceutical service provision during out of hours was sufficient to meet current need. All locations where LCD saw patients (HRI, Bradley and Dewsbury District Hospital) are near to extended hours pharmacies and the OOH staff have good relationships with several of these pharmacies. Some areas of Kirklees specifically Denby Dale and Kirkburton and The Valleys localities, are not so well served with extended hours pharmacies however this did not cause LCD any problems as they currently did not operate any OOH services from these areas other than home visits. LCD maintains a stock of medicines (including palliative care drugs) which reflects the national OOH formulary and in instances when a medicine is needed urgently or access via a prescription will cause problems for the patient then this stock is used rather than giving a prescription. Lists of the pharmacies which are part of the community pharmacy palliative care scheme are available for the doctors/drivers who do home visits. Provision of palliative care drugs to patients is also supplemented by the community pharmacy palliative care service. Other initiatives such as anticipatory prescribing of palliative care drugs for relevant patients might also be reducing access problems. A review of the palliative care scheme is underway to assess options for the future and determine the future approach which will give the most benefit.

Community pharmacists views Community pharmacists were asked for their views of current gaps in pharmaceutical services particularly considering the needs of the more vulnerable and hard to reach groups within their communities. Key themes mentioned across all localities were: • Development of a minor ailments scheme; this would help low income families access medicines without having the need to visit their GP. This would also benefit GPs by reducing consultation rates for self limiting illnesses. • Health checks such as blood pressure and cholesterol monitoring, diabetes testing and weight checks, advice on diet and exercise was a very common consistent message. • Another strong theme was around developing pharmaceutical services specifically aimed at the elderly, disabled and housebound. Suggestions included expanding the MUR services to allow domiciliary visits for review of medicines use and compliance. Enhanced services to facilitate provision of aids such as dosette boxes, MAR sheets etc were also mentioned.

Suggested needs in specific localities were: • Services to support patients with language barriers so they could better understand their medicines in the Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw, Dewsbury and Mirfield and Huddersfield North localities. • Vaccination services and hepatitis C screening was also mentioned for these localities.

Formal consultation A formal consultation of the draft PNA took place between 9 August and 15 October 2010. A report on the consultation and the PCTs response is available on the PCT website www.kirklees.nhs.uk/public-information/publications/reviews-and-assessments/

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


10 Identified pharmaceutical needs Having assessed local needs and the current provision of pharmaceutical services, gaps have been identified. Some gaps will need collaborative working with current community pharmacy providers to encourage transition towards the PCT’s ultimate goals. Others will need to be prioritised and might not be immediately commissioned even if a new applicant or existing pharmacy offers to provide the service. NHS Kirklees would need to identify overall provision of a service in each locality, ensure appropriateness, value for money, quality and patient satisfaction of any related services currently provided before progressing expansion or commissioning of new services. Any new enhanced service commissioned is likely to be offered to existing providers of pharmaceutical services first before considering new applications.

Current service gaps/pressures Availability of pharmacies In 2009/2010, NHS Kirklees had the third highest number of pharmacies per 100,000 population in the Yorkshire and Humber region with 23 pharmacies. The average for both the Yorkshire and Humber region and England was 21. At that time Kirklees had 92 pharmacies. NHS Kirklees currently has 93 pharmacies. The exemption clause in NHS (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2005, allowing pharmacies to open without consideration of control of entry test; necessary, desirable and expedient, has seen a significant rise in Kirklees pharmacies; from 85 in 2006/07 to 93 in 2010/11. Five out of the additional eight pharmacies were 100 hour contracts. Over the past year, the pharmacy panel has granted approval for seven new pharmacies to be opened by June 2011 (pending extension rights). Four are for 100 hour pharmacies; two based in the southern part of the Huddersfield locality in Lockwood, and the rest are based in The Valleys locality in and around the village of Slaithwaite. In addition two 40 hour applications were also approved for The Valleys locality (one having extended opening hours which would enhance access in the Holmfirth and surrounding areas, the second application for the New Mill area has now missed its deadline to open or gain extension for ongoing approval). The remaining one opened in Denby Dale village in July 2010. Furthermore four new applications are awaiting consideration by the Kirklees pharmacy panel or the appeals authority in the near future, one of these being for a wholly internet/mail order pharmacy in the Huddersfield locality, the second for a 40 hour contract in the village of Golcar, part of The Valleys locality, and the rest are 100 hour applications in the Paddock area (Huddersfield locality) and Slaithwaite (The Valleys locality). See section 10 for the list of applications. NHS Kirklees currently has the highest number of 100 hour pharmacies (12) in the Yorkshire and Humber region, almost twice as many compared to the neighbouring West Yorkshire PCTs. One hundred hour pharmacies in Kirklees have improved access during evenings and weekends for patients and the PCT would not want to see a reduction in provision of pharmaceutical services during these extended hours or out of hours period from any contracted 100 hour pharmacy apart from in the Dewsbury locality. These

100 hour pharmacies fulfil an identified need for essential and directed services particularly at times when other pharmacies are closed. Any additional 100 hour pharmacies which open in the interim are likely to only fulfil a need for service provision in the out of hours periods and provision of directed services (advanced and enhanced) at these times would be necessary as current pharmacies provide adequate cover for the remainder times. These statistics would suggest Kirklees is more than adequately supplied with community pharmacies and any further granting of new applications would not be meeting an identified need for pharmaceutical services during the normal working day but only serve to secure improvements or better access during evenings or weekends.

Access As depicted in section eight under pharmacy facilities and locality summaries, all except two localities have good access to pharmaceutical service provision into late evenings on weekdays and Saturday. Similarly in those localities there are pharmacies open throughout Sunday. Localities with poorest opening times are Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton and The Valleys. The number of pharmacies in these two localities is markedly less than in other localities. Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton locality has the second least number of pharmacies per 100,000 population with The Valleys locality having the least number in Kirklees at 14. There are no 100 hour or extended hour pharmacies in either of these localities. However with the potential opening of 100 hour pharmacies in The Valleys, provision will be adequately met and there will be no further need in this locality for more pharmacies. Provision in Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton locality has improved since the recent opening of a pharmacy in Denby Dale however longer weekday opening including Saturday and Sunday opening would be welcome in this locality. This issue has been identified by both patients and health providers (see section 9). Longer weekday opening and Saturday and Sunday opening is therefore identified as a gap in service provision for this locality. The need for extended hour weekday provision and better weekend opening in these specified areas would ideally come from current providers. It is felt current provision of pharmacies in this locality is necessary and that any further developments are only necessary to secure improvements or better access. Disabled access could be improved upon across Kirklees, as could availability of staff with bilingual skills relevant to the local ethnic population in which the pharmacy is sited. These gaps should be addressed by existing providers.

Applications relating to change of hours When considering applications from contractors to change hours, the pharmacy panel must always review availability of core hours amongst pharmacies in the vicinity of the locality so as to maintain adequate opening times throughout the seven day week for each locality in Kirklees.

Services There appears to be a lack of knowledge from both patients and health care staff about the range of services available from pharmacies. In particular more publicity for the public is needed about the disposal of waste medication service provided by all pharmacies and the availability of directed services. Similarly community pharmacists at times appear unaware of services currently commissioned by NHS Kirklees. As the range of services provided through community pharmacies increases the training and skills of pharmacists and their support team will also need to be developed. NHS Kirklees will make sure that adequate training opportunities are provided to members of the pharmacy team to enable them to deliver services to meet the needs of NHS Kirklees.

68

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


Directed service provision Contractual arrangements allow pharmacies to conduct a maximum of 400 MURs annually and dispensing GPs must perform DRUMs on a minimum of 10% of their registered dispensing patients to get the specified payment. Table two shows the level of reviews undertaken in 2009/10 per pharmacy and GP dispensing practice. 78.3% of Kirklees pharmacies provide an MUR service compared to 85.4 % in Yorkshire and Humber and 85.7% in England. NHS Kirklees has the second lowest percentage for all PCTs in Yorkshire and Humber region. Whilst a small number of pharmacies achieved the maximum allowed number of reviews there is scope to deliver more reviews from this service. In particular the northern part of the Huddersfield locality delivers the least number of reviews of all localities with significant numbers of pharmacies not delivering any at all. This MUR advanced service has great potential for delivering much better value for money and improving patients use and understanding of their medicines. NHS Kirklees can encourage tailoring of reviews to support particular, specific patient groups e.g. elderly, disabled, and housebound. Also, targeting reviews towards patients with long term conditions of particular significance to our population e.g. diabetes, coronary heart disease and asthma will further help effective use of medicines within Kirklees. Health needs of the population in the seven Kirklees localities which could be supported by commissioning of enhanced pharmaceutical services have been addressed in section 8 of the PNA under each locality summary. Currently commissioned enhanced services such as stop smoking, sexual health, supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine and needle and syringe exchange are important resources satisfying our populations health needs. Section eight identifies gaps and pressures in each of the localities. A refocus of the target audience might be required for stop smoking services e.g. in Batley, Dewsbury and north of Huddersfield towards young people. Also in Batley, Dewsbury, and Spen stop smoking services should be targeted at pregnant women. The current service is under review and is likely to be transformed into a voucher scheme operating as an access scheme only, where the pharmacy dispenses Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) from a voucher issued to the patient by a specialist advisor. This scheme will be offered widely across Kirklees. Some pharmacies, particularly those whose staff trained as Level 2 advisors will also have the opportunity to continue offering specialist smoking cessation advice clinics. The sexual health scheme is a fairly new service and the intention is to contract more pharmacies in areas of greatest need as depicted on Map D. We would like to engage with more pharmacists and increase the points of access across Kirklees. Sharing training for the sexual health pharmacy LES across West Yorkshire should increase the opportunity for pharmacists to join this scheme. Furthermore, in 2011 the PCT sexual health team are working to develop tiered sexual health services based on areas of need, which will include access to sexual health services in pharmacies as well as through other access points e.g. GPs. The head lice scheme is well received by the public and health care professionals alike and at present adequately serves the populations needs. Assessment of the potential benefits of the minor ailment pilot scheme, currently running in parts of Huddersfield will determine its future roll out across Kirklees. Continuation of the scheme and extent of expansion will depend on evaluation of the pilot scheme. Consideration of the current health needs of the Kirklees population and the views from stakeholders suggests there are potentially many new enhanced services which could be commissioned. Of significance and resonating from all quarters surveyed is the possible need for: • NHS health checks/screening services • Weight management clinics including healthy lifestyle interventions • Pain management services • Alcohol treatment services • Medicines management services specifically aimed at the elderly, disabled and housebound. However when judging levels and type of service provision needed from community pharmacies a holistic review of all services from all providers in the locality contributing to reducing that specific health need has to be undertaken. This will make sure resources are used effectively and efficiently. Section eight identifies potential need for such services in each locality. New services or expansion of current services will be commissioned as and when the PCT or PBC consortia are in a position to fund such services.

Future developments The following paragraphs outline the known or potential developments of primary care medical services within NHS Kirklees, applications for new community pharmacies or minor relocations and any planned developments forwarded by the local council. Primary care medical services • Drs Taylor and Martin, Crosland Moor Practice in the Huddersfield South locality is likely to move to a site at Moorfield Primary Care Centre, Park Road West, Crosland Moor by December 2010. This move should not cause any loss of access to pharmaceutical services in this locality. • Drs Butt and Ahmed, Bradford Road Medical Centre in Huddersfield North locality is approved to move to a site on Cobcroft Road. This move is not anticipated to take place for another 12-18 months. • New surgeries are planned for Dr Ghafoor and Partners, West Park Surgery and Dr Asmal and Partners of Warren Street but new sites and dates for these moves are yet to be confirmed. It is highly unlikely that these practices will move more than half a mile a way from their current sites therefore access to pharmaceutical services is unlikely to be disrupted.

Community pharmacy panel applications At the time of writing this document the following applications had been granted by the pharmacy panel. • Mr A M Khan preliminary consent (40 hour) at New Mill Road, Holmfirth, Huddersfield expired 01/12/2010 • Nasim Akhtar preliminary consent (100 Hours) in the vicinity of 8-14 Meltham Road, Lockwood, HD1 3TJ expires 07/12/2010. However full consent has since been applied for and granted till 7/6/2011 for premises at 6, 8 and 12 Meltham Road, Lockwood, HD1 3TJ • NACAD Ltd full consent at Oaklands Health Centre, Huddersfield Road, Holmfirth, HD9 3TP expires 1/3/2011 • Gorgemead Ltd preliminary consent (100 Hours) at Croft House Surgery, Manchester Road, Slaithwaite, HD7 5JY grant expires 6/4/2011 • Huddersfield Health Focus Ltd full consent (100 Hour) at 1137 Manchester Road, Slaithwaite, HD7 5LU grant expires 6/4/2011 • Mr M Ghaffar (Lockwood Pharmacy) preliminary consent (100 Hour) in the vicinity of 227 – 231 Lockwood Road, Lockwood, Huddersfield HD1 3TG - grant expires 6/4/2011 • Thimmegowda Associates Limited (full consent minor relocation under 500m) from 13 Halifax Road, WF13 2JH to 47 Albion Street, WF13 2AJ - grant due to lapse 21/05/2011 The application listed below was rejected by the pharmacy panel and is currently under appeal with a decision expected from the appeals authority during winter 2010: • M S Health Ltd preliminary consent (40 hour) in the vicinity of Sycamore Avenue, Golcar, Huddersfield Applications currently under consultation or being processed by the pharmacy panel include: • Synergy P ltd T/A HD Pharmacy, Cobcroft Road, Huddersfield, HD2 (wholly internet /mail order pharmacy) • Pathvalley Limited (minor relocation under 500m) from 9-10 Carr Lane, HD7 5AN to Croft House Surgery, Manchester Road, Slaithwaite, HD7 5JY • PathValley Ltd preliminary consent (100 hours) at 9-10 Carr Lane, HD7 5AN, Slaithwaite. • Mr I Younis for full consent (100 hours) at 5 Brow Road, Paddock, Huddersfield, HD1 4TP • Application by Mr A Hafiz for preliminary consent for minor relocation (over 500 metres) within the same neighbourhood from 107 Bradford Road, Huddersfield, HD1 6DZ to land at 5, Cobcroft Road, Fartown.

Local authority developments In respect of developments with Kirklees Council a number of proposed developments targeted at older people are planned. However, apart from the ones being organised by the council directly none of these are yet at a stage where we can be definite about them going ahead – so the impact on pharmacy is unquantifiable at this stage.

Looking to the future There is scope to design and commission a range of new services to be delivered in a community pharmacy setting such as: • NHS health checks • Weight management • Medicines management services for the elderly and vulnerable • Alcohol brief interventions • Vaccination services • Pain management • Anticoagulation clinics • Chlamydia treating Over the past 18 months, NHS Kirklees has been working with service providers to develop a Kirklees wide chronic pain care pathway and to commission new services in line with evidence based practice, and to respond more effectively to patient outcomes. Pharmacists will play a key role in supporting individuals with low impact chronic pain. Pain management clinics delivered by community pharmacies should be an incorporated part of the pathway, making sure that customers have access to medicines management advice and support for self care techniques to help them manage their chronic pain condition. Managing abuse of alcohol is a PCT priority for both adults and children and young people although there are selected areas where we have specific concerns as outlined in section eight. In the future we might be able to start an alcohol identification and brief advice (IBA) pilot local enhanced service in a limited number of pharmacies provided there is sufficient resource and capacity. These services could either give greater access, where these types of services are already being delivered by other healthcare professionals, (i.e. increase productivity) or result in service re-designs to maximise efficiency savings and improve the quality of patient care. These actions will link in with statements made in ‘NHS 2010–2015: from good to great. Preventative, People-centred, Productive’ helping to make sure that NHS Kirklees complies with relevant guidance and key documents. The benefits of using the repeat dispensing (RD) system will possibly be better received following the implementation and roll out of phase two of electronic prescription services (EPS) anticipated to start in Kirklees in summer 2011.

11 Summary/conclusions This needs assessment suggests that there are sufficient pharmacies in Kirklees; however there might be a need for longer opening hours both at weekends and weekdays in The Valleys and Mirfield, Denby Dale and Kirkburton localities. All remaining localities particularly those containing the most deprived populations are well served with pharmacies having a good range of opening hours throughout the week. The extended hours GP service and Walk In Centre also have sufficient pharmacies open after 6pm to meet their current need. Community pharmacy is a well-used service which is highly valued by those who use it; however there is room for improvement in delivery of some of the essential and advanced service indicators. It is apparent that patients, carers and health professionals are not aware of the full range of enhanced services currently commissioned by the PCT. Greater emphasis will have to be put into both advertising these services and recruiting pharmacies in areas most wanting of those services. Community pharmacy is well placed as a service provider because it is more accessible to local people than either hospital or GP services and because of its longer opening hours especially weekend opening. Community pharmacists will need to continue to acquire many new clinical and consultation skills so that they can better meet the challenges the community pharmacy contract brings. Pharmacies currently not participating in advanced services will be encouraged to acquire accredited consultation rooms and offer the MUR service to appropriate patient groups as identified by the PCT or PBC groups. These developments will need investment in training for pharmacists and pharmacy support staff to capitalise on these possible future roles. In order for these to be effective the contract must be underpinned by a robust IT support system being in place, so that progress of ETP and access to care records is facilitated. IT facilities within community pharmacies must be improved upon and used more effectively as email transmission becomes the more accepted route of communication in the workplace compared to more traditional routes. Regular access to the internet and word processing packages without disrupting the dispensary process will have to become routine practice. It will help enormously with rapid communication in times of emergency/major incidents. All pharmacy applicants granted a contract under an exempt category (other than mail order) will be expected to fulfil the criteria listed in section 12 Control of Entry: Exempt Applications. The PNA will be used as a tool in commissioning decisions for new pharmacy services, where the clinical resource within community pharmacy can be used to maximum effect in meeting the health needs of the Kirklees population and after a holistic review of service provision from all providers. New services or expansion of current services will be dependent on availability of sufficient financial resource.

72

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


12 Control of Entry: Exempt Applications Applicants using one of the four exemptions to the control of entry test (pertaining to current and amended NHS Regulations 2005) are required to provide within three months of opening, the following enhanced services subject to PCT-determined need for the service at the time of application and availability of resources: • Stop smoking service • Head lice scheme • Sexual health services including: - Emergency hormonal contraception (extends to females from 13 years old) - Chlamydia screening - Pregnancy testing - Condom distribution • Supervised consumption of methadone and buprenorphine • Needle and syringe exchange • Palliative care service Other enhanced services (e.g. stop smoking voucher scheme, NHS health checks, weight management clinics, pain management clinics, minor ailments scheme, vaccination clinics etc) might be commissioned at a future date and contractors will be expected to provide such services as deemed necessary by the PCT or PBCs to fulfil a need in the local community. Applicants must be willing to make sure that there will be a pharmacist present at all times when pharmaceutical services are to be provided, who has undergone the PCT’s required training for all of the above mentioned services making sure that the services specified above are provided for the entire opening hours of the pharmacy. Applicants are also required to provide the advanced services. The pharmacy will have a consulting room and will carry out MURs. Provision of essential, advanced services particularly MURs and enhanced services during extended hours and out of hours opening times are deemed necessary from this group of contractors as they will be fulfilling a need when other pharmacies are closed. Applicants should be willing to fully comply with all the requirements of the NHS Kirklees monitoring procedure for pharmacies that are obligated to open for 100 hours, including informing NHS Kirklees of the planned and actual pharmacist cover.

Applications relating to change of hours When considering applications from contractors to change hours, the pharmacy panel must always review availability of core hours amongst pharmacies in the vicinity of the locality so as to maintain adequate opening times throughout the seven day week for each locality.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Appendix 3 - How the PNA was developed The following steps were taken to develop this PNA: • A PNA project board was developed in December 2009 with the following purpose: • To develop a draft pharmaceutical needs assessment (PNA) for the population of NHS Kirklees by July 2010. • To undertake required consultation with stakeholders and publish a finalised PNA by December 2010.

Core membership included • Senior Medicines Management Advisor – Strategy and Operational development (Chair) • Director of Patient Care and Professions • Assistant Director of Public Health (PH Intelligence) • Calderdale & Kirklees Local Pharmaceutical Committee representative • Communications lead • Community Pharmacy Contract Manager • Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) lead • Practice Based Commissioning representative • Primary Care Contracts representative • Senior Public Health Manager • Administrative support

And co-opted members included • Assistant Director of Medicines Management and Prescribing • Assistant Director of Quality and Clinical Governance (or nominated deputy) • Assistant Director Risk, Safety and Security • Deputy Director of Commissioning and Strategic Development • Public Health Programme managers Regular meetings have been held and formal minutes recorded decisions of this group. Minutes were routinely shared with various PCT and stakeholder groups. Terms of reference were signed off by the PCT governance committee.

January – March 2010 • A timeline for development of the PNA was agreed and shared with stakeholders. • Development of the PNA identified for adding to the risk register. • An assessment of local health needs and inequalities which could be influenced or supported by local pharmaceutical service provision was undertaken by reviewing the JSNA 2009 and the five year strategic plan 2010. • The locality structure used in the JSNA was determined as the most suitable method of dividing the geographic area of Kirklees. • All PCT held data recording activity of community pharmacies (e.g prescription dispensing, MUR reviews performed) and participation in commissioned enhanced services was identified. • Provision of services from other providers that supported the identified health needs or inequalities were agreed to be incorporated into the PNA.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT

83


March – May 2010 • An initial draft of this collated information was circulated to various stakeholders i.e. PBC groups and stand-alones, LMC, PCT commissioners, LPC, urgent care provider and local authority using a variety of engagement exercises. The background to the PNA was explained and stakeholders were asked to comment on the draft document and shape of future pharmaceutical services. • A patient questionnaire was developed and distributed to the public via local network groups and through community pharmacies to gain their views on current pharmaceutical provision and future developments/services they would like to see from their local pharmacies. • Community pharmacist views on services offered and their future aspirations were also sought using a questionnaire agreed with the LPC. June – August 2010 • A series of maps were agreed to be incorporated into the PNA. These included a map which identified the premises at which pharmaceutical and dispensing services are provided and assorted maps showing particular services provided at each set of premises. • A trawl of complaints/issues received by NHS Kirklees over the past two year period was investigated together with any other information highlighting patients viewpoint on current pharmaceutical provision within Kirklees in order to gain a more complete picture for the PNA. • Further information obtained included; opening hours of community pharmacies and average walking time for each locality population to reach their nearest community pharmacy • Recent decisions taken by the pharmacy panel on applications to join the NHS pharmaceutical list and current applications being processed by the panel were identified as these could have a significant impact on any gaps identified. • Having assessed local needs and current provision of services gaps in provision were identified. • Communication plan and consultation process agreed. • Draft finalised for consultation, published on the NHS Kirklees website, distributed to stakeholders and presented to PCT Primary care commissioning group, PCT Governance committee, and PCT Board. August – October 2010 • Consultation period ran from Monday 9 August to 15 October 2010. • A range of consultation activities were undertaken during the 10 week consultation period. Nov 2010 – Jan 2011 • Comments received from consultation were reviewed by PNA project board and Consultation report produced as formal PCT response to Consultation exercise. See report at www.kirklees.nhs.uk • PNA updated in light of consultation and ratified by PCT Board on 26 January 2011 along with Equality impact assessment and Consultation report. • PNA, Equality impact assessment and Consultation report formally published on 1 February 2011 and available on NHS Kirklees website. www.kirklees.nhs.uk NB The PNA 2011 document contains information available and known to the PCT as at 30 November 2010.

Appendix 5 - Equality impact assessment 1 What is being equality impact assessed? Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA)

2 Description of the function being equality impact assessed: The aim of a PNA is to enable NHS Kirklees and relevant stakeholders to understand the pharmaceutical needs of the local population. The objectives of this PNA are: • To have a clear picture of the current services provided by community pharmacies • To have a robust decision making process in respect of applications for NHS community pharmacy contracts within NHS Kirklees • To make sure that there is a robust commissioning process to commission enhanced services from community pharmacies and enable community pharmacies to take part in service re-design • To be able to plan for future services to be delivered by community pharmacy • To stipulate the range of directed enhanced services that community pharmacies entering the pharmaceutical list under the ‘exempt’ category within the ‘Control of Entry’ Regulations (e.g. 100 hour pharmacies and wholly internet pharmacies) • To make sure that any gaps in service provision are adequately addressed • To encourage the use of community pharmacies as a means of reducing health inequalities • To encourage multidisciplinary working between independent pharmacy contractors and other healthcare professionals The PNA should be used by patients, current service providers, future service providers and commissioners alike in the following way: • Maps and tables detailing specific services will enable patients to see clearly where they can access a particular service. It will also provide another source of contact details of their local pharmacies. • Current service providers will be better able to understand the unmet needs of patients in their vicinity and take steps to address this need. • Future service providers will be able to tailor their application to be added to the pharmaceutical list in a manner that makes sure that they will provide the services most needed by the local community. • Commissioners will be able to move away from the ‘one-size fits all approach’ 4 to make sure that pharmaceutical services are delivered via a targeted approach • Members of the NHS Kirklees pharmacy panel will be in a better position to judge the validity of new applications to join the pharmaceutical list and make sure that patients receive the services they need rather than duplicating effort.

3 Lead contact person for the Equality Impact Assessment: Lucianne Ricketts – Senior Medicines Management Adviser, NHS Kirklees. Email: Lucianne.ricketts@kirklees.nhs.uk.

4 Who else is involved in this equality impact assessment: Members of the PNA project group - see appendix 3.

5 Sources of information used to identify barriers etc Information used in this assessment has been derived from a range of sources including Kirklees JSNA 2009, NHS Kirklees five year strategic plan, PPI complaints, local PNA patient questionnaire, local PNA Community pharmacist questionnaire. DH equality impact assessment on the development of PNA regulations, DH publications on world class commissioning and pharmaceutical service provision, NHS health informatics data, pharmaceutical standards of conduct, ethics and performance.

PHARMACEUTICAL NEEDS ASSESSMENT


What does your research tell you about the impact your proposal will have on the following equality groups? Kirklees comprises a mix of urban communities and rural areas. The total population in 2009 was approximately 427,700. By 2025 the population is predicted to increase by 7.4% to nearly 455,000. Pharmaceutical services are available to any patients regardless of age, religious belief and sexual orientation. The eligibility to provide pharmaceutical services covers any applicant regardless of age, religious belief and sexual orientation. The impact of the PNA on health is expected to be positive, as pharmaceutical service provision will better reflect the needs of the local communities to be served and thereby have a positive impact on health inequalities. This would give the NHS Kirklees greater control over the services commissioned against those needs and raise standards for NHS patients. BME groups: The population of Kirklees has a mix of people with different ethnic origins. More than one in five are of South Asian origin, Pakistani and Indian primarily. Batley, Birstall and Birkenshaw locality, together with Dewsbury and Mirfield locality have the highest concentration of South Asians around 30% compared to The Valleys and Denby Dale and Kirkburton with 2.6% and 1.7% respectively (lowest %). There is a small Afro-Caribbean population mainly located in Huddersfield. Information from our patient questionnaire suggests good usage of community pharmacists by BME groups with the majority using pharmacies more than six times a year. Services used regularly include dispensing of prescriptions and buying over the counter medicines. Home delivery and prescription collection services together with enhanced services are not well used by BME population compared to the white British population. This could be due to language or literacy barriers causing lack of awareness of the services available? In contrast however there was overwhelming support from this group to have NHS health checks, weight/ pain management clinics and vaccination services to be developed in community pharmacies. Results from the community pharmacy questionnaire revealed that there was availability of South Asian speaking staff within some pharmacies located in areas with high South Asian populations. However support with language barriers was reported as an additional need in localities containing higher ethnic populations. Disability groups: It is a requirement that community pharmacy contractors, in fulfilling their responsibility to provide a range of essential services under the current contractual framework, comply with the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. This also applies to pharmacies who would be commissioned to provide services based on PNAs. Pharmacy contractors as service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to enable someone with a disability to use the service. Reasonable adjustment might include the provision of an auxiliary or compliance aid to enable a person who is disabled to take their medicines. Our patient survey indicated that those with limited activity used the same pharmacy. Their use regularly compared to the non disabled group and not surprisingly their use of home delivery services was much higher. Sixty five out of 92 pharmacies reported having a means of access for disabled people with 57 having a consultation area with wheelchair access. Age and gender: Currently nearly one in four of the population is aged less than 19 years. Half the population is of working age and just less than one in seven are aged over 65 years. By 2025 the proportion in the working age group will have reduced and those aged over 65 will have increased to nearly one in five as people live longer than before. The increase in those aged over 65 includes a large increase in the proportion living over 85 years. Frequent users of pharmacies include females, those aged over 35 and those with a long term health condition or disability (LTC). Those working full time visit pharmacies less frequently than other groups.

If gender and age are considered together, the highest frequency pharmacy users are female aged 35 -74 and males aged over 55. Males aged 16-24 use pharmacies the least. Older people are more likely to be regular users of pharmaceutical services. A study conducted for the Office of Fair Trading in 2002 found that 22% of the sample of 1434 households who used pharmacies to make their prescriptions up were between 60 and 70 and 17% were over the age of 70, compared with 10% and 11% of the UK population generally. The PNA has identified older people as potentially needing extra services in the future and young peoples needs (i.e. expansion of sexual health services and potential for alcohol interventions) have also been identified. Sexual orientation: Part of the sexual health range of enhanced services commissioned by NHS Kirklees from community pharmacy contractors includes the distribution of condoms. The aim being to reduce the rates of teenage pregnancy and STIs. The training and service specification might need stronger emphasis on raising awareness of safer sex amongst sexually active young people, regardless of sexuality or sexual orientation. Religion and belief: Standards of conduct, ethics and performance set out the behaviours, attitudes and values expected of pharmacy professionals. Standard 3.4 of the pharmacists code of ethics enables a pharmacy professional to refer a patient to an alternative provider where the professionals religious or moral beliefs prevent them from providing a service. This can have implications for some services particularly in relation to provision of emergency hormonal contraception (EHC) treatment. The future pharmacy regulator – the General Pharmaceutical Council – has agreed to review the inclusion of the “conscience clause” in its first year of operation.

6 Consultation: new or previous: During the development of the draft PNA several engagement exercises were carried out during the months of March, April and May 2010. These included a patient questionnaire seeking views on services provided currently by local pharmacies and services which people might like to see provided in the future. The questionnaire was available as hard copy or on line at www.kirklees.nhs.uk. Community pharmacies were asked to distribute them to their customers. The following groups also received the questionnaire including Voluntary Action Group (VAK), LINk, EPP support group, readers panel, diabetes reference group, working in partnership distribution list and database of people expressing an interest to be involved in NHS Kirklees work. Presentations were provided to LMC, PBC and LTC team with the opportunity to give feedback on current and future pharmaceutical service provision which would support their populations health needs. An assessment of complaints received at NHS Kirklees about community pharmacies was done by the patient and public Involvement team. A questionnaire aimed at the professionals (community pharmacists and dispensing doctors) was circulated to identify the current pharmaceutical service available across Kirklees and also gain an understanding of gaps in service provision and potential unmet need. A formal consultation of the draft PNA is being conducted from August to October 2010. The draft PNA is available on the NHS Kirklees website and the web link has been forwarded to all stakeholders and neighbouring PCTs. In addition hard copies of the document have been sent to local community pharmacist contractors. Several drop-in consultation sessions are arranged in key locality sites to collect views from various public groups, healthcare professionals and managers and local authority staff.
