Document What is the Pharmacy Access Scheme (PhAS)?

As part of the two year final funding package introduced in December 2016, the Department of Health and Social Care introduced the PhAS with the aim to ensure that a baseline level of patient access to NHS Community pharmaceutical services in England is protected.

The PhAS will protect access in areas where there are fewer pharmacies with higher health needs so that no area will be left without community pharmaceutical services.

The scheme will be paid for from the funding for the community pharmacy contractual framework (CPCF).
