Understanding your FP34 Schedule of Payments

The Schedule of Payments is a document which provides contractors with a summary breakdown of reimbursement for drugs and appliances provided against NHS prescriptions including the fees payable for any additional NHS services provided for example, Advanced Services and any locally authorised payments from your NHS England Area team. Pharmacy contractors can expect to receive their Schedule of Payment from NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) 5-working days before the payment date.Download PSNC Factsheet: Using Your Schedule of Payments to Monitor Performance – In this factsheet, PSNC’s Dispensing and Supply team explain how to analyse your monthly Schedule of Payments to help you understand and manage your NHS pharmacy business more effectively
