PLEASE NOTE: This legacy briefing has been migrated across from our previous website

Community pharmacists and their teams work at the heart of communities and are trusted professionals in supporting individual, family and community health. Many services provided by community pharmacists are commissioned locally according to the needs of the area. NHS Regions, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and Local Authorities (LAs) commission services from individual pharmacies.

As a result of commissioning, a written contract (or sometimes a Service Level Agreement – see SLA briefing) will be agreed between the parties.

The PSNC briefing below provides information on the NHS Standard Contract and also on the Public Health Services Contract (non-mandatory contract).
