NHSE&I have published new Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance for primary care teams. This includes a specific document for community pharmacy teams, which sets out the Standard Operating Procedure for dealing with patients presenting in the pharmacy with suspected COVID-19 infection.  All pharmacy contractors should read the guidance and undertake appropriate actions to manage potentially infected patients.

You can download the most up-to-date version of this document from the following page:

The government guidance has also been updated recently:
