What contractors and pharmacy teams can continue to do

Guidance for pharmacies has been published by NHSE&I, which is subject to review as the situation changes. Our general guidance is that pharmacy contractors and their teams:

  1. Read the NHSE&I guidance whenever it is updated and implement its recommended actions;
  2. Clearly display the relevant posters at points of entry to your pharmacy;
  3. Complete a risk review for your pharmacy and put steps in place to mitigate any risks identified;
  4. Implement your business continuity plan where required
  5. Keep up to date with developments by regularly checking the information on  COVID-19 on GOV.UK, the NHSE&I Coronavirus Primary Care webpage and checking your NHSmail shared mailbox on a regular basis for updates
