- Commission quality, accessible and timely NHS pharmacy services for residents across the south of England.
- Ensure services are implemented through national contracting mechanisms, enablers and frameworks, developed to support the local commissioning of NHS pharmacy services and the best possible service to patients.
- Support Local Pharmacy Networks (which represents local pharmacy providers).

Medicine Use Reviews (MURs)
In most instances pharmacy contractors will provide MURs at their premises. There may however be exceptional circumstances where this is not possible, e.g. patient is housebound, in which case the contractor may apply for permission to conduct an MUR at alternative premises, at the patient’s home or by telephone. The various forms that need completing and returning for prior approval in such circumstances are available on the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) website.
