Pharmacy enhanced servicing pricing toolkit developed

The NHS has produced a new pricing toolkit to help LPCs and PCTs when considering a locally-commissioned enhanced service.

Pharmacy enhanced services
The document has been developed with the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee and NHS Employers, and presents a checklist of cost elements to consider.

The enhanced services are separated in to three categories, set up/annual, service delivery and administration/review. Within each of these categories the elements for consideration are assessed with regards to whether they are always a cost, sometimes a cost or rarely a cost. Specific tips and traps are also listed for each service.

The toolkit can be accessed from the NHS Primary Care Contracting website.
