Under the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF), £2.592 billion a year was committed to the community pharmacy sector in the five-year deal from 2019/20 to 2023/24 for the National Health Service pharmaceutical services they provide, a total of nearly £13 billion. To maintain access in areas where there are fewer pharmacies or higher health needs, additional payments, from within that funding, are made under the Pharmacy Access Scheme to eligible pharmacies.
