Locally commissioned services

Locally commissioned community pharmacy services can be contracted via a number of different routes and by different commissioners, including local authorities, Integrated Care Systems and NHS England’s local teams. In Surrey and Sussex, most commissioned services are public health services, commissioned by the public health team at the county councils and unitary authority.

The LPCs represent local contractors in negotiations for locally commissioned services and have developed this Service evaluation tool for locally commissioned services to help scrutinise each proposal / service specification.

At the end of this scrutiny process a summary is shared with contractors who have expressed an interest in providing the service to highlight the key points for their attention and consideration. This helps contractors make an informed decision to provide a locally commissioned service, or not.
