New Name New UTI Service Spec and more
Locally commissioned UTI service is returning this month with a new name, new SLA and new PGD.
Now called Community Pharmacy Extended Care Services there will be a whole family of services commissioned by NHSE&I in Staffordshire and Shropshire.
The service has two tiers – Tier 1 services can be offered by any interested pharmacy and this includes the relaunched UTI service. Details can be found on the Extended Care Page of this website.
A new Tier 1 service is also starting, allowing pharmacies to supply chloramphenicol for moderate to severe acute bacterial infection in under 2s. Pharmacists are reminded that antibiotics are not first line treatment for this condition. Details can be found on the Extended Care Page of this website.

FYI – the old Pharmacy First name was “retired” amid confusion over which services had ended when common ailments services were decommissioned.
