The second tier of the NHS contractual services (CPCF) are the Advanced Services.
There are currently seven such services that a community pharmacy may choose to provide.
They are not mandatory, unlike the Essential Services, although most pharmacies will provide at least two of the services available.
If providing these services, then the Directions as set out by the Secretary of State must be met. Additional training or continuing professional development may be required (service dependent) and a professional self-declaration as well as evidence of having acquired the necessary competence may have to be provided to NHS England.
