Community Pharmacies Holding Palliative Care Drugs

Pharmacies commissioned to provide this service stock a locally agreed list of medicines and make a commitment to ensure that the users of the service have prompt access to these medicines, in response to the presentation of an NHS prescription, during the pharmacies' contracted opening hours.

Please note: Other pharmacies will routinely stock many, if not all, of these drugs as part of their usual dispensary stock.

In the event of there being insufficient stock to fill an immediate need the pharmacy will liaise with another community pharmacy in the service with stock and/or other local community pharmacies. The pharmacy will aim to locate a pharmacy with sufficient in-date stock and request that they reserve that stock for collection by the user. If no further stock can be located the pharmacy will contact the prescriber to discuss a suitable alternative.

This service is available within the pharmacies opening hours only (available from NHS Choices Outside these hours requests should be directed to the Out of Hours Service Provider for the relevant area.
