Distance Selling Pharmacies DSPs – can they be HLPs? • Would need to fully meet all the requirements • Requirements were designed for bricks and mortar pharmacies • DSPs can’t provide Essential Services to patients on their premises • NHS England or PHE have not issued any guidance on this matter, but for the reasons set out above, PSNC believes it is unlikely that a DSP could fully meet the requirements for being an HLP.
