Pharmacy contract teams

The role of the local primary care pharmacy contract teams is to:

  • Determine applications for pharmacy contracts, monitor contracts and ensure appropriate availability and access to pharmaceutical services.
  • Ensure consistent implementation and delivery of national NHS pharmaceutical (essential and advanced) services are across England.
  • Commission high quality, accessible and timely enhanced pharmaceutical services for local residents.
  • Maintain the local pharmaceutical list.
  • Support contractors to provide the best possible service to patients.
  • Consult and work collaboratively with the Local Pharmacy Committees (LPCs), which represent local pharmacy providers.
  • Work with others locally to ensure integration of pharmaceutical services with other NHS services.

Pharmacy contract teams are supported by NHS England regions and the national community pharmacy commissioning team.
