New GP CPCS resources

Alongside the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and the Primary Care Pharmacy Association, PSNC has endorsed an NHS England and NHS Improvement briefing note which outlines how the GP referral pathway works and how to implement it in Primary Care Networks and practices. A new case study has also been published alongside the briefing note.

RCGP and NHSE&I also held a joint webinar recently on GP CPCS which covered how the referral pathway works and how it supports general practice; a recording of the webinar is now available on-demand.
