Services Database Community Pharmacy Extended Care Tier 1 (Across the Shropshire & Staffordshire Areas – 3 LPCs involved)

Service ID

469346

Description

Please note this service is commissioned across the NHS England North Midlands Staffordshire and Shropshire (NHSE S&S) Area. Therefore, the following LPCs have the same extended care service in their areas:

  • North Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent LPC;
  • Shropshire LPC; and
  • South Staffordshire LPC

The service has only been added onto the Services Database under this entry to avoid duplication.

The overall aim of the scheme is to ensure that patients can access self-care advice for the treatment
of a range of conditions, and, where appropriate, can be supplied with antibiotics or other
prescription only medicines to treat their condition. This provides an alternative location from which
patients can seek advice and treatment, rather than seeking treatment via a prescription from their
GP or Out of Hours (OHH) provider, walk in centre or accident and emergency.

All recording of service provisions will be via  PharmOutcomes.
