Community Pharmacies

Community pharmacy, sometimes called retail pharmacy, is part of the primary care system in England, along with GPs, optical services and dentistry. Typically, community pharmacies operate as a retail outlet that also has qualified health care professionals providing some health care services. Its presence on many high streets, often on a walk-in basis, makes community pharmacy easily accessible for patients and provides a source of advice and support around their medicines, for minor acute illnesses, or for ongoing long-term conditions.

Dispensing Appliance Contractor

Distance Selling Pharmacies

These pharmacies provide pharmacy services without making face-to-face contact with the patient. Medicines are typically delivered to the patients home by courier.

Evening opening

Evening opening pharmacies are open until 6pm or later.

72+ Hours Pharmacy

A pharmacy that was granted an NHS contract under a control of entry exemption requiring it to open for at least 72 hours per week.
