Palliative Care Service March 2017
NHSE are currently updating the SLA for the palliative care service and those pharmacies currently providing the service should receive an updated version of the SLA from Andy Pickard at NHSE and will simply need to sign and return this to NHSE to continue providing the service.
We are pleased to advise you that the NEW Palliative Care Medicines Service is now live; there are a majority of the selected pharmacies signed up with NHS England and we have a wide geographical spread across our area, and also covering both evenings and weekends. The latest list of pharmacies (now including opening hours) can be found below:
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 3 of the SLA which can be found below:
