Deadline fast approaching to claim for COVID-19 costs

THIS CONTENT HAS NOW EXPIRED

Community pharmacy contractors have until 23.59 on 15th August 2021 to claim for the extra costs they incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any contractor who has yet to complete the claim form is recommended to review the information and PSNC guidance on psnc.org.uk/COVIDcosts without delay.

Contractors should also be mindful that the £370 million Advance Payments given to the sector last year will be recovered from all community pharmacies, even those who do not make a COVID-19 costs claim.

Action to take

Once you have all the information and evidence you need, complete the agreed claim form provided by the NHSBSA:

Contractors will receive an automated reply from NHSBSA to confirm their submission has been received. Please retain a copy of this reply as evidence of your submission.
