Advanced Community Pharmacy Services
NUMSAS -NHS Urgent Medicine Supply Advanced Service
Community pharmacies can register to provide the NHS Urgent Medicines Supply Advanced Service pilot (NUMSAS) on the NHS BSA website.
This is commissioned as a fully integrated service, and as such it requires a number of key elements to be in place prior to contractors being able to go live.
Any pharmacy that is able to meet the criteria set out in the service specification is able to register, but will only be able to receive referrals from NHS 111 and provide the service when the service goes live in their area. Further information is available here
