The stagnation in the level of remuneration in the community pharmacy contractual framework in England has been shown in a parliamentary question.

Coventry South MP Jim Cunningham asked how much the Department of Health has allocated to the community pharmacy contractual framework in each of the last five years.

Responding, health minister Alistair Burt said the funding agreed for by the Department and, from 2013-14, by NHS England was:

  • 2011-12 - £2.526 billion
  • 2012-13 - £2.486 billion
  • 2013-14 - £2.8 billion
  • 2014-15 - £2.8 billion
  • 2015-16 - £2.8 billion

The National Pharmacy Association has flagged up a public meeting taking place in London later this month to discuss concerns about the proposed cuts to pharmacy funding due to be introduced from October. The meeting, taking place on May 15 at 11am at the Chelsea Old town Hall, has been organised by Pharmacy London, the body representing London’s local pharmaceutical committees.

“The meeting will bring patients up to date with Department of Health plans for pharmacy services across England, including current proposals for cuts and ‘efficiencies’. Patients will also have the chance to share their experiences of pharmacy services in the capital,” said the NPA.
