EHC & Chlamydia Screening in Pharmacies 2019

EHC Pharmacy List October 2019

Devon CC– In order to remove barriers for those who might otherwise find access to EHC a challenge, there will be a grace period during which the mandatory requirements on pharmacists to declare they have completed the CPPE and face to face training for the service will be relaxed. This grace period will be for 3 months to 25/6/2020 and then reviewed thereafter. The benefit for any locum enrolling to provide the service for the first time at your pharmacy is that they will only have to declare they have read and signed both PGDs; if they tick ‘no’ to any of the 3 training questions, they will still be able to deliver the service during the grace period. This should benefit any accredited EHC pharmacy if the usual pharmacist is unwell or self-isolating and a locum is delivering instead.
We have had an email to support the proposed action from the Devon LPC who are happy for this relaxation. Similar action will be taken across Devon, Torbay and Plymouth. The authors of the two PGDs are also supportive of this action.
Thank you for continuing to provide this service
