Proof of concept /proof of value pilots.

CHL works with LPCs, Academic Health Science Network/Health Innovation Manchester and other commissioners to review local health needs and priorities and identify where community pharmacy can get involved and add value. Securing funding from various sources including NHS and the Pharmaceutical Industry, CHL will scope, develop, implement, mobilise and performance manage pilot services. Evaluation is key to ensure scale up and commissioning once the value/concept is proven.

​Pharmacy Integration Fund

Work with local NHS and national Pharmacy Integration fund to ensure GM participation in any nationally funded pilots e.g. GP CPCS and CURE stop smoking referrals. Commissioned by local NHS to scope, develop, implement, mobilise and performance manage pilots in community pharmacies. Work closely with national evaluation teams to support evaluation of these pilots.


CHL can secure funding from the pharmaceutical industry to support demonstration of community pharmacy value in various therapeutic areas. Liaise with local NHS organisations to secure commissioning as NHS service or private service commissioning via CHL as appropriate. Full project management from scoping to implementation and performance management.
