Extension to the Pharmacy Access Scheme review application window


Community pharmacy contractors eligible to apply for a Pharmacy Access Scheme (PhAS) 2022 review have been given an additional month to complete their applications – until midnight on 4th March 2022.

Applications must be completed on the dedicated NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) web review portal, and it is important to gather all the evidence you need for an application before you start it. Contractors applying for a review are strongly encouraged to read PhAS: contractor guidance on submitting an eligibility review application – distance grounds only before starting their applications. The link to the NHSE&I web portal is included in this guidance.
