NHS Community Pharmacy Clinical Services Evaluation

NHS England have recently commissioned RAND Europe, an independent external research organisation, to undertake an evaluation of the clinical services commissioned under the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF 2019-24).  Through this evaluation they hope to gain the information required to inform future strategy, and to make effective decisions regarding clinical services for the community pharmacy sector.

The objectives are to:

  • understand the effectiveness of the CPCF clinical services, what your successes, opportunities, challenges, and barriers have been
  • consider the commissioning arrangements and to understand the key factors that impact on service delivery
  • understand the experience of the community pharmacy workforce and its contractors in providing these services
  • understand the patient experience and outcomes of clinical services

They would really welcome views both from those who have actively participated and also those who have felt unable to support some, or all, services.
