CPCF Terms of Service Changes Summary

Updated 01/06/2023

Changes to the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework Terms of Service

On 20th October 2020 new NHS regulations were laid to introduce changes to the Terms of Service for pharmacy contractors.

Some of these changes relate to the coronavirus pandemic, but most are changes which were previously agreed as part of the 5-year Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) and were originally planned to be introduced in July 2020.

It is particularly important that these key areas are highlighted when there are changes of staff, to ensure continued compliance with the requirements around updating information on central systems and accessing both SCRs and NHS mail accounts.
