Community Pharmacy Consultation Service – CPCS

The Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) is a service that offers a consultation (either via phone or face to face) with a local pharmacist. The consultation would be within 24 hours of us referring you and so is the fastest way for you to get care.

This is not the same as just popping into the pharmacy and will involve a full consultation as you would expect at the practice. If the pharmacist feels that the issue needs to be addressed by a GP they will organise that with us. The pharmacist will not be able to do any prescriptions for you but may suggest over the counter items which might help. These sort of items are not usually prescribed on the NHS.

We will refer you to to your nominated chemist or if you don’t have a nominated chemist one of the other local pharmacies unless you say you don’t want us to refer you. If you have a preferred pharmacy please let us know and we can refer you there.
