Palliative care drugs

A number of pharmacies are commissioned to provide a locally agreed list of medicines that may be necessary in palliative care. These pharmacies make a commitment to ensure that the users have prompt access to these medicines when presented with an NHS prescription, during the pharmacies contracted opening hours.

Please note: Other pharmacies may routinely stock many, if not all, of these medicines as part of their usual dispensary stock.

In the event of there being insufficient stock to fill an immediate need, the pharmacy will liaise with another community pharmacy. The pharmacy will aim to locate a pharmacy with sufficient in-date stock and request that they reserve the stock for collection by the user. If no further stock can be located the pharmacy will contact the prescriber to discuss a suitable alternative.

This service is available within the pharmacies opening hours only (available from the NHS Website www.nhs.uk). Outside these hours requests should be directed to the Out of Hours service provider for the relevant area.
