NHS publishes COVID-19 guidance for community pharmacy


Share post:

NHS England and NHS Improvement on Thursday published a new coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for primary care, including a specific document for primary care teams.

The document explains the actions a community pharmacy should take in “managing contact with, and presentations of, patients who suspect they have COVID-19.” 

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) asked all pharmacists to read the guidance and undertake appropriate preparations for dealing with potentially infected patients.

As the global situation with COVID-19 is changing on a daily basis, PSNC also suggested pharmacists to regularly follow NHS updates and keep up to date with the latest guidance on the GOV.UK website.

The guidance is available here.
