Community Pharmacy Consultation Service


The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) will launch on 29th October 2019 as an Advanced Service.

The service, which will replace the NUMSAS and DMIRS pilots, will connect patients who have a minor illness or need an urgent supply of a medicine with a community pharmacy.

The CPCS will take referrals to community pharmacy from NHS 111 initially, with a rise in scale with referrals from other parts of the NHS to follow. CPCS will relieve pressure on the wider NHS by connecting patients with community pharmacy, which should be their first port of call and can deliver a swift, convenient and effective service to meet their needs.

CPCS provides the opportunity for community pharmacy to play a bigger role than ever this winter as an integral part of the NHS urgent care system. This will continue to be supported by the NHS Help Us Help You Pharmacy Advice campaign.
