The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) facilitates patients having a same day appointment with their community pharmacist for minor illness or an urgent supply of a regular medicine.
The service is helping to alleviate pressure on GP appointments and emergency departments, in addition to harnessing the skills and medicines knowledge of pharmacists.
The following topics will be covered:
- How does CPCS work?
- When will CPCS be activated?
- Is this a mandatory system?
- What are the benefits of using CPCS?
Although the session is scheduled for 1 hour this may be reduced depending on the numbers of queries from attendees. Attendees can leave the session at any point if they feel their requirements have been met.
