– Palliative Care Stock in Community Pharmacy


Aims and Objectives

This service aims to ensure that palliative care medicines are available during the participating pharmacy’s normal working hours.

Service Specification

Community Pharmacists – owners or managers agree that their name be included in a list of names maintained by CCG and provided to all pharmacies, GPs, nurses and palliative care providers.

The pharmacists included in this scheme will be contracted to hold a minimum stock of an agreed range of palliative care medicines as outlined in Appendix A, Part A – ‘Basic Level Provision’.  This is the stock available from ALL participating pharmacies.

In addition to the basic level provision, there will be ONE Pharmacy that will also hold the ‘extended level provision’ stock – Appendix A, Part B.  This pharmacy will be identified by the CCG and the details of this pharmacy will be communicated with all relevant parties.
