Your pharmacy team can help you with your minor health concerns. Since starting in October 2019, the NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) has supported thousands of patients referred from NHS111 with medicine needs and management of minor health conditions.
The service has now been extended to include referrals from General Practice for minor illnesses and conditions such as constipation, cough, sore throat and joint pain*. This means that a pharmacy may be able to support you just as effectively upon referral from your GP practice
Referring you into a pharmacy this way:
• Gives the pharmacist all the information needed about your medical condition to provide the service safely and
effectively with a trained professional
• Usually allows you to be seen the same day or at a time to suit you
• Enables you to be seen by the most appropriate health care professional at the right time
• Allows information captured during the consultation to be shared with the practice
The NHS is planning on collecting further GP data. For full information on what data is collected and how to opt out of the latest data collection, click the link below.NHS DIGITAL TRANSPARANCY NOTICE
