Extended Care Service
Community Pharmacy Extended Care Services
The service has three tiers:
Tier 1 services can be offered by any interested pharmacy and include the simple UTI service for females age 16-64 years and the acute bacterial conjunctivitis (ABC) service for children under 2 years.
Tier 2 skin services are available for offer by any interested pharmacy provided that they also deliver Tier 1 service.
Tier 3 service will only be available for offer by selected pharmacies. There will be a selection process which will involve completion of an expression of interest on PharmOutcomes. This will be announced in due course, at this time NHSE&I are working on new SLAs and PGDs etc.
ENT EOI important note: pharmacies which previously offered the ENT service in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire or Staffordshire will be required to complete the EOI to indicate their interest and readiness in restarting the service.
