PSNC launches GP CPCS animation
PSNC has launched a video animation and infographic explaining how GP practices can refer into the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS).
The digital explainers have been developed to help describe the GP referral pathway into the CPCS. The animation outlines how referrals work and what pharmacies do with those referrals, as well as the success of NHS 111 referrals into the CPCS. The infographic complements the animation but in a one-page factsheet format.
PSNC is working with NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) and others to raise awareness of the benefits that GP CPCS can bring with Primary Care Networks (PCNs) and general practice teams. They hope that the new animation and infographic will help LPCs and pharmacy teams to initiate local discussions on implementing the service in their areas.
