Over 10,700 contractors benefit from earlier advance payments on 12 May

10,797 pharmacy contractors who declared their April 2022 FP34C submission figures through the Manage Your Service (MYS) portal by 6 May 2022 received their earlier advance payments on Thursday 12 May 2022 (circa 20 days earlier than the normal advance payment timetable).

This leaves c.400 contractors who did not receive any earlier advance payments in May because their April FP34C declarations were submitted late through MYS (after 6 May). Contractors who submitted their FP34C late will receive their advance payments in accordance with the normal payment timetable i.e. on 1 June 2022.

Further details on the advance payment arrangements are outlined in this PSNC briefing. Pharmacy contractors can also view an on-demand version of a webinar on the changes to advance payments and FP34C submission requirements.

PSNC’s briefing titled ‘Administrative charges for late submission of prescription forms’ provides guidance for pharmacy teams on the correct end of month submission processes and information regarding how the NHSBSA will administer the £25 administrative charge for late submissions.
