CPCF negotiations during the election period

We have issued the following clarification on the 2024/25 Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) negotiations.

Our Chief Executive Janet Morrison said:

“Government purdah effectively began as soon as the Prime Minister announced the General Election. Whilst discussions can continue no formal agreement can be reached until after the election and new Ministers are appointed.

Current funding levels remain critical. CPE is committed to building cross party support for the sector and the vital role it plays in every community. It has been positive this weekend to hear manifesto pledges for community pharmacy, and politicians recognising the huge challenges faced by the sector. It will be a priority to work at pace with the Government to resolve negotiations and address these issues following the election.”

Support the call for more funding by recording information about the informal advice you provide to patients over just one day.
