Cheshire East Council is extending the sexual health services they wish community pharmacy to provide by adding the provision of quick start contraception using patient group directions (PGD). Agreement to provide these new services was part of the contract awarded to you to provide emergency contraception.
The PGD for this extended service has been developed and Cheshire East contractors are invited to a training evening. The service will be supported by PharmOutcomes in the same way emergency contraception is.
