The CPSA was introduced in July 2012 and has been implemented in stages. 

The CPSA 12 2017-18 to June 30 2018 has been extended by three months to 30 September 2018 to give DHBs time to consider recent consultation feedback on delivering on the Pharmacy Action Plan; hold discussions with sector representatives, pharmacist bodies and other health groups on the way forward: and finalising funding for 2018-19.
