NHS community pharmacy contract


Community pharmacies in England provide services under the NHS Community Pharmacy Contractual framework (CPCF). Services sit within the following categories:

Essential services – these are provided by all pharmacy contractors under a clinical governance framework that includes clinical audit and information governance requirements.

Advanced services – which can be provided by all contractors once accreditation requirements have been met and are commissioned by NHS England.

Locally commissioned services – these are local public health services commissioned mostly  by local authorities. CCGs may also commission local services from community pharmacy to meet the needs of their patients.
