GP referral pathway to NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service for minor illness
What is it?
GP referral to the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (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 are referred for a consultation with a community pharmacist and with their consent, an electronic referral message is sent to their chosen pharmacy. Following the clinical consultation, if the pharmacist considers the patient should be seen by their GP, they will contact the general practice using a locally agreed escalation process and agree next steps e.g., patient is booked into an emergency appointment at the practice that day.
