The NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service

The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) was launched by NHS England on the 29 October 2019, to facilitate patients having a same day appointment with their community pharmacist for minor illness or an urgent supply of a regular medicine, improving access to services and providing more convenient treatment closer to patients’ homes.

The service is helping to alleviate pressure on Primary Care appointments and emergency departments, in addition to harnessing the skills and medicines knowledge of Pharmacists. Should the patient need to be escalated or referred to an alternative service, the Community Pharmacist can arrange this.

If you require an appointment in relation to Mental Health, you now can self refer without speaking to a clinician.  Please click on this link to our self-referrals page.
