Pharmacy teams should note that from November 2021, all community pharmacy contractors will have the chance to receive earlier advance payments, following agreement between Community Pharmacy England and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). Advance payments will be made approximately 20 days earlier than the current payment timetable for contractors who make their monthly FP34C submissions through the Manage Your Service (MYS) portal by the 5th of the month.
