Revised Schedule of Payments expected in April

The look of your monthly Schedule of Payments (and eSchedules) is changing from April 2024. The next payment schedule due to be received on the 23 April (for February 2024 dispensing month) will have several improvements including:

  • Breakdown of Pharmacy First payments, alongside activity data relating to this
  • Total reimbursement and discount deduction split by generics/brands/appliances rates and between prescriptions and Pharmacy First Clinical Pathway items
  • VAT information for products supplied under Pharmacy First Clinical Pathways
  • The split of consumable and container allowances between prescriptions and Pharmacy First Clinical Pathway items
  • The split of patient levies between prescriptions and Pharmacy First Clinical Pathway items
