NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS)

For treatment of minor illnesses

The NHS Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) is an NHS England initiative providing more convenient treatment closer to patients’ homes.

Lots of conditions are more appropriate for a consultation with a Community Pharmacist, rather than a GP. Our Patient Advisors will discuss your symptoms and, if appropriate, send you for a same day appointment with an NHS Community Pharmacist for a personal consultation.  You will have a choice over which pharmacy you are referred to.

Community Pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals with 5 years training and spend a high percentage of their time helping patients with minor illness.
