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.
