CPCS Support for Locum Pharmacists

CPCS Support for Locum Pharmacists

September 25, 2019

The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) goes live on 29th October 2019, replacing the NUMSAS and DMIRS pilots. Pharmacy contractors are now registering to provide the service and it is expected that most pharmacies will participate in it. Pharmacies that are registered for the service must provide it throughout their full opening hours. As the service is provided by pharmacists, it is important that all community pharmacists, including locums, know how to provide the service.

PSNC have produced the attached guidance to help support locums. Please share this communication with locums who work in your pharmacy. CPCS comms for locum pharmacists
