Contract Monitoring


Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework

To ensure that patients and members of the public receive safe, effective and high quality pharmaceutical services, NHS England has processes in place to monitor compliance by pharmacy contractors, who are included in one of the NHS England’s pharmaceutical list,
with the terms of service set out in the NHS (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013 (the 2013 regulations).

One of these processes is the use of the community pharmacy assurance framework (CPAF). In October 2015 you will be asked by NHS England to complete the CPAF screening questionnaire for 2015/16.
