PSNC Regs Explainer

Following the new NHS regulations which were laid to introduce changes to the Terms of Service for pharmacy contractors on 20 October PSNC have a developed a series of explainer articles.

Some of these changes relate to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but most are changes which were previously agreed as part of the 5-year Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) and were originally planned to be introduced in July 2020.

The LPC recommends that all pharmacies review the articles to ensure they are meeting their Terms of Service.

Links to each article can be found in the table below:
