New Stoke on Trent EHC Contract and PGDs June 2020

New EHC Contract and PGDs for Stoke on Trent June 2020

Stoke on Trent City Council has released the new service spec and PGDs for the pharmacy emergency hormonal contraception service.  The major change is that there are no longer two tiers to the service, all pharmacies who sign the new contract will be able to supply EHC (when deemed appropriate following a professional consultation) to woman of all ages.  More information can be found on the services page of this website 

Urgent action is needed by Stoke pharmacy teams as the new contract starts on July 1st 2020 and you need to review the SLA and sign up asap

Please note – this only affects the Stoke contract (you have a Stoke contract if you are tier 1 or tier 2 provider), pharmacies who operate the Staffordshire service are unaffected by these changes.
