Taking into account announcements around the future of community pharmacy set out in the NHS Long Term Plan and the general practitioner contract, the Department, supported by NHS England and NHS Improvement, is currently working with the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee 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.
