The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA)  has three processing sites. Prescriptions should be sent to one of the following scanning sites :

  • Ridgway House, Northgate Close, Horwich, Bolton, BL6 6PQ
  • Bridge House, 152 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 6SN.
  • Unit 5, Greenfinch Way, Newburn Riverside, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE15 8NX.

NHSBSA open days

The NHSBSA hold open days both onsite and online for pharmacy staff to visit and find out more about the process for checking and pricing prescriptions. Anyone involved in sending in prescriptions for reimbursement and remuneration may find the NHSBSA open days useful.

Onsite visits usually lasts 90 minutes while online versions last 60 minutes.

The online presentation covers the same information as the onsite visit and is live, so you can ask any questions you may have. Online sessions mirror a site visit where you will see prescriptions arriving onsite, discover how they are prepared, scanned and processed before being paid. It will also cover essential hints and tips on subjects such as batch submission, endorsing, fee claiming and switching. These sessions can be tailored to suit your needs.

Webinar sessions

The NHSBSA also hold two webinar sessions for dispensing contractors on popular topics to keep you informed and answer any questions you may have. Subjects include:

  • Endorsing Including Referred backs.
  • Batch submission and Switching.

These sessions usually last around 30 minutes
