Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework


The Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework (CPAF) is required to be completed yearly as a demonstration of compliance with the Community Pharmacy Contract.

Contractors will have four weeks to complete the screening questionnaire which will be available from Monday 3 June 2019 with a closure date of Sunday 30 June 2019. The questionnaire should only take around 20 minutes to complete.

More information can be found on the PSNC website

Contractors are still advised to review the full CPAF to ensure that they are fully compliant – PharmOutcomes have made the fully assessment available on their platform.

Pinnacle Health have also  produced a comprehensive guide to completing the CPAF assessment here:
