Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS)

Meanwood Group Practice are delighted to now be offering an extra FREE NHS service linking in with Community Pharmacies to connect patients who have a minor illness called the Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS)

As well as referrals from general practices, the service takes referrals to community pharmacy from NHS 111 (and NHS 111 online for requests for urgent supply), Integrated Urgent Care Clinical Assessment Services and in some cases patients referred via the 999 service.

The CPCS aims to relieve pressure on the wider NHS by triaging patients through a series of medical questions, and then connecting patients with a community pharmacy within 2-3 hours, to deliver a swift, convenient and effective service to meet their needs.

The CPCS provides the opportunity for community pharmacy to play a bigger role than ever within the urgent care system.
