Pharmacy First Specification, PGD’s and documentation

The service requirements are included in the service specification and the associated clinical pathways.

Pharmacists must read and sign-up to the final versions of the PGDs and protocol, rather than the draft versions, before providing the service.

CPE are currently working with NHS England to ensure there is a Microsoft Word version of the authorisation sheet (which pharmacists and authorising managers need to sign) so that pharmacy details can be added to this. We will alert pharmacy owners through our normal communication channels when this is available.

All of these documents are essential reading for pharmacy owners and pharmacists providing the service.
