Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework (CPAF)

The NHS England Area Teams are responsible for monitoring community pharmacies compliance with the contractual framework.

Each year as part of the monitoring of the Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework, NHS England will be asking each community pharmacy nationwide to complete a return about current processes and procedures within each pharmacy, declaring how that pharmacy complies (or is working towards complying) with the terms of service in relation to essential and advanced services.

For 2013/14 the NHS England West Yorkshire Area Team have requested that community pharmacies complete a contract assurance self-assessment on PharmOutcomes and submit this to them by the 30th September 2013.

Completion of the CPAF self-assessment is not a mandatory requirement of the Terms of Service.  However the completion and submission of the CPAF self-assessment by pharmacies on PharmOutcomes can streamline the process and in most cases remove the need for a full contract monitoring visit to take place.

Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire, with PharmOutcomes, have produced a CPAF guide to outline how to access, complete and submit the CPAF assessments.
