The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) is recognised by the UK Secretary of State for Health as representative of community pharmacy on National Health Service matters. The PSNC's main objective is to secure the best possible remuneration, terms and conditions for NHS pharmacy contractors in England and Wales. Much of the PSNC’s work involves discussions and negotiations with the Department of Health.

PSNC also operates the National Prescription Research Centre (NPRC) based in North London. A percentage of all prescriptions sent to NHS Prescription Services are checked and any errors in pricing are corrected.
