Community pharmacy contractors can now submit their December 2021 claims for the Pharmacy Collect service by the end of January 2022.

Considering high demand for Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test kits, the UK Health Security Agency, Department of Health and Social Care, and NHS England and NHS Improvement have agreed to extend the submission deadline “on an exceptional basis.”

For December 2021 claims, contractors must make submissions before 11.59pm on January 31, 2022, Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has informed.

Claims received by the new deadline will be processed alongside the rest of the December submission, and will not lead to a delay in payment, PSNC added.
