CPCS Minor Illness added to NHS 111 Online
From the 3rd of October 2022, as part of the Community Pharmacy Consultation Service (CPCS) in England, NHS 111 online can now send referrals for minor illness consultations. This is in addition to the referrals that they can currently send for urgent medicines supplies. Referrals will continue to arrive through the usual IT channels and should continue to be managed in the usual way, with NHSmail to be used as a backup if the CPCS IT system is down. The change comes following a six month pilot in several regions.
