The Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (Minor Illness and Urgent Repeat Medicines Supply pathways) has replaced the Urgent Medicine Supply advanced service pilot?

The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) is a national Advanced Service to refer patients requiring low acuity advice, treatment and urgent repeat prescriptions to community pharmacies.

The service aims to reduce pressure on the primary and urgent care system, particularly Accident and Emergency and GP out of hours. The service will support the integration of community pharmacy into the urgent care system.

Further information and the full service specification is available on the CPCS page of NHS England and NHS Improvement website.
