Please note this service was commissioned across  Staffordshire by the Shropshire CCGs. Therefore, the following LPCs had the same NHS Community Pharmacy Emergency Supply Service in their areas:

  • North Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent LPC
  • South Staffordshire LPC

The service has only been added onto the Services Database under this entry to avoid duplication.

The Community Pharmacy Emergency Supply Service allows the emergency supply of a patient’s medicine at NHS expense in order to reduce the number of patients contacting urgent and emergency care providers. This may include both POMs and other medicines usually obtained on prescription by the patient from their GP. The NHS England North Midlands Community Pharmacy Emergency Supply Service permits the supply of sufficient quantities of medicines available on prescription for up to 14 days treatment.
