One week left to claim Covid costs, PSNC reminds contractors


Share post:

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has reminded the community pharmacy contractors to claim for the extra costs they incurred due to the Covid-19 pandemic until  23.59 on 15th August 2021.

PSNC stressed it is important that no contractor miss out on this opportunity. “Please begin thinking about your Covid-19 costs and gathering evidence for them as soon as possible, so you have adequate time to complete the claim form,” it added.

Contractors should be aware that the £370 million advance payments given to the sector last year will be recovered from all community pharmacies, even those who do not make a Covid-19 costs claim.

Contractors can claim for specific categories of Covid-19 related costs incurred between 1st March 2020 and 31st March 2021 for the delivery of NHS pharmaceutical services. 

The NHSBSA claim form asks contractors to set out their costs according to their categories and indicate the evidence they have for them. 

Contractors with two or more branches will be able to submit a single claim for all their premises.
