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 – these can be provided by contractors once accreditation requirements have been met

Enhanced services

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.
