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

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.
