NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service in Altrincham

Community Pharmacist Consultation Service

The NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS) was launched in 2019 by NHS England. This service works to provide patients with access to same-day appointments with their community pharmacists. These appointments are for minor illnesses or an urgent supply of regular medicine, improving access to services and providing more convenient treatment closer to your home and digitally through online consultations and telephone calls. The service helps to alleviate pressure on GP practices and emergency departments, in addition to harnessing the skills and medicines knowledge of pharmacists. Our team at High Street Pharmacy work to provide the NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service in Altrincham and across the UK with telephone and video appointments.

If we find that you as the patient need to be escalated or referred to an alternative service, we can arrange this and point you in the right direction.
