Discount deduction changes webinar
Published on: 14th October 2022 | Updated on: 11th April 2023
Community Pharmacy England held a webinar about changes to the discount deduction system on 12th October 2022; a recorded version of this webinar is available below.
During the webinar viewers heard how the changes will help those contractors who were being disadvantaged by the previous unfair system, and how the transition arrangements will give them time to adapt. Community Pharmacy England’s Mike Dent and Jack Cresswell walk viewers through some examples of how the changes may affect some pharmacies under different scenarios.
The discount deduction scale has been a point of contention for contractors for many years, and Community Pharmacy England has been pushing to remedy this. The changes will lead to a levelling out for all pharmacies, with the impact on individual contractors varied due to their unique dispensing mix. This webinar is part of a series of resources about the changes to discount deduction.
