General Practice Staff Workshops

GP Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (GP CPCS)

General Practice Staff Workshops


Who is this for?

Open to general practice staff across North East London.

Aimed at: receptionists, care navigators, front line nonclinical staff.

What is this about?

A referral process from a General Practice to a Community Pharmacist—the GP CPCS—has been developed.

The GP CPCS allows GPs to create additional capacity by referring patients with minor ailments to a pharmacist for a consultation, giving them more time to see patients who would otherwise be required to wait longer for appointments.

This will also enable pharmacists to utilise their skills and knowledge to further serve the community.

Further Information about GP CPCS can be found here.

What will the sessions involve?

Objectives for the workshop include:

  • Overview of GPCPCS
