Guide for NHS 111 services on urgent prescriptions

NHS England has published guidance for commissioners and NHS 111 providers on how NHS 111 services can make a direct referral to a pharmacy commissioned to provide urgent repeat medication as a locally commissioned NHS service.

This guidance draws on the experience of a number of areas of the country where local pharmaceutical committees, NHS 111 providers and CCGs have been collaborating to increase referrals to community pharmacies where patients need an emergency supply of a prescribed medicine.
