The Department, with NHS England and NHS Improvement, is currently working with the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) to determine the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework settlement for 2019/20 and beyond. These are confidential negotiations and as such we are unable to provide any detail on these discussions at this time. The Government is, however, committed to working with the PSNC to deliver a fair settlement for the NHS services community pharmacies provide, and one which will enable us to deliver the NHS Long Term Plan.
