Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS)

CPCS is the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service which has been running as an Advanced Service in community pharmacies since October 2019.

The service connects patients who have a minor illness or need an urgent supply of medication with a community pharmacy. Only specific conditions suitable for referral within symptom groups. Our local pharmacists are now able to prescribe medications, like antibiotics, for some conditions such as; skin, urine and respiratory infections.

The pharmacist has a private consultation with the patient, via telephone initially, and follows a structured approach to respond to symptoms.
