NHS Contract


The NHS community pharmacy contractual framework (CPCF) is agreed between PSNC, NHS England and the Department of Health (DH).

The contract is made up of three different service levels:

Essential services – provided by all contractors;

Advanced services – can be provided by all contractors once accreditation requirements have been met; and

Locally commissioned services – previously described as Enhanced services, commissioned locally by Local Authorities, Clinical Commissioning Groups and NHS England in response to the needs of the local population.
