Pharmacy technicians to perform blood checks under ‘Community Pharmacy Hypertension Case-Finding Advanced Service’


Share post:

Along with pharmacists, pharmacy technicians in England are now able to perform blood pressure checks as part of the Hypertension Case-Finding Service and deliver the Smoking Cessation Service (SCS).

The government has amended Drug Tariff and includes the amendments to The Pharmaceutical Services (Advanced and Enhanced Services) (Amendment) (England) Directions 2023.

Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) said: “The service specifications for both services are currently going through NHS England’s publication process; when these are published PSNC will alert contractors through their normal communication channels. PSNC resources for both of these services are also currently being updated.”
