This demonstrates support for the service and shows a willingness from NHS England to work with Pharmacies to ensure that CPCS remains a successful service.
Communications will be sent via NHS England direct to pharmacies via their NHS Mail to detail the specifics. We understand that you will need to still be offering CPCS and that payments will be made direct via the BSA. Please keep a look out for the email for full details.
In response to the news Dave Carter, LPC Chairman commented " This is great news for community pharmacy and shows a commitment from NHS England. We hope this will continue going forward. Pharmacies have shown resilience over the past 2 years and have shown that they are an essential primary care resource, CPCS is a great service which utilises the Pharmacy teams skills and helps patients. Its continued success will demonstrate how valuable community pharmacies are to the NHS and ultimately to patient care."
