Pharmacy First Scotland Activity Payment Anomaly

01 Dec 2020

Community Pharmacy Scotland have advised contractors of an anomaly in Pharmacy First Activity payments for September 2020

Pharmacy contractors were expecting the final flat fee of £750 to be paid for September Pharmacy First activity as detailed in NHS circular PCA (P)(2020) 15

Community Pharmacy Scotland have advised of an anomaly that has caused September pharmacy contractor payment to have been calculated on the activity based share of the funding pool for Pharmacy First rather than the flat fee.  CPS have corrected this by arranging for the October payment to return to the flat payment of £750 with the activity share payment recommencing for November.
