Services and HLP

Pharmaceutical services in Kent and Medway are commissioned by a number of different bodies.  They are:

  • Clinical Commissioning Groups (locally commissioned services)
  • Local Authority (Kent County Council and Medway Council)
  • Public Health (Quit Smoking, Sexual Health Services)

In March 2017, NHS England services were de-commissioned and minor ailments was not re-commissioned by CCGs (except for the common ailments scheme in West Kent). Palliative care was not re-commissioned by some CCGs and some use a “Just in Case Box” that may involve community pharmacy in its assembly.

Contact your local CCG for advice on this.
