Due to the late commissioning of the service, the timescales are extremely tight. If you would like to opt into the service, then this needs to be completed today (Monday 19th December) or, at the very latest tomorrow (Tuesday, 20th December). However, it would be preferable if you could sign up as early as possible to the scheme as the service will be going live on Wednesday 21st December and the Directory of Services needs to be completed for ‘go live’. It is also important for as many community pharmacies to sign up to the service as possible, in order to optimise the effectiveness of the service and the coverage of the service for patients.
