Claiming Payments & validation of the gateway criteria

Community pharmacy contractors will be able to claim an early and advanced ‘Aspiration payment‘ of up to 70% of their earning under the PQS 2019/20 (if they participated in the QPS in 2018/19) between 9am on 30th September 2019 and 11.59pm on 1st November 2019.

Contractors will then be able to make a declaration for a PQS payment (based on the criteria they have actually met) between 9am on 3rd February 2020 and 11.59pm on 28th February 2020.

As for previous declarations, contractors wishing to claim a PQS payment will be required to submit their declaration online to the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA); however, for the February 2020 review point, contractors will only be able to claim for a payment via one route, by using the Manage Your Service (MYS) application (contractors will not be able to use Snap Survey as per previous review points to make a declaration).
