Community Pharmacist Consultation Service

WEB PCN practices are engaged with the Community Pharmacist Consultation Services (CPCS) and are able to make patient referrals to community pharmacies for minor illnesses.  The service aims to reduce the pressure on general practices and A&E departments whilst offering increased convenience and choice for patients.

Pharmacists have extensive knowledge on health conditions and medicines and are able to provide appropriate advice on a range of health topics and therefore, where a patient requires health advice not related to their referral a pharmacist is well placed to provide this advice. If necessary, patients can be referred back to their GP.  All patients are eligible to be referred into the service, including children over the age of 1 year.
