£300m package to support community pharmacies during coronavirus outbreak

Community pharmacies are to receive a £300m boost to ensure they can continue to carry out essential services during the coronavirus outbreak.

The funding will support pharmacies to continue supplying medicines and providing medical advice to patients. £200m was paid on 1 April to pharmacy contractors, alongside their normal monthly payments from the NHS Business Services Authority, and a further £100m will be allocated on 1 May.
