Palliative Care Service
NHSE have updated the SLA for the palliative care service and those pharmacies which have been selected to be part of this service will have been notified by Andy Pickard at NHSE.
Palliative Care Pharmacies
To find a pharmacy which is part of the service, please download this document and check for pharmacies with a tick in the palliative care column:
If you do signpost someone to one of these pharmacies, please call them first to confirm stocks are available.
The supply of palliative care medicines is not limited to these pharmacies however they are commissioned to keep a minimum stock of the medicines concerned; the list of medicines covered appears on page 8 of the SLA and can be downloaded by using the link below.
There is a similar service in Shropshire with a slightly different stock list. If you are on the Staffordshire / Shropshire border this list of Shropshire pharmacies may also be useful
