The GP referral to the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (GP CPCS) is a new pathway that practices can use to refer patients with minor illness, for a same day consultation with a community pharmacist.
When a patient with minor illness symptoms phones the practice requesting an appointment, they can be referred for a consultation with a community pharmacist and with their consent, an electronic referral message is sent to their chosen pharmacy.
The NCL Training Hub and Medicines Management Team, NCL CCG are running a webinar on 5 October from 1-2pm to give more information to GPs, Clinical Pharmacists and Practice Managers about the service. Speakers will include:
- Amalin Dutt, Head of Medicines Management Team (NCL CCG, Islington borough)
- Dr Farzad Entikabi, GP Partner Swiss Cottage Surgery & Clinical Director Central Camden Primary Care Network
- Richard Brown, Chief Officer of Avon LPC
