Changes have been made to the NHS Terms of Service for community pharmacies in England, this includes the inclusion of the Pandemic Treatment Protocol (PTP). This allows for the supply of a Prescription Only Medicine (POM) to a person/representative for the prevention or treatment of the disease where a PTP is in place. This came into force on 9 November 2020, and PTPs will form part of the Essential Dispensing service.
Further information can be found on the PSNC website.
Details on PTP service requirements can be found on the PSNC website.
