Two weeks left to claim an Aspiration payment, PSNC reminds contractors


Share post:

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has reminded community pharmacy contractors that they have two weeks left to claim an Aspiration payment for the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2022/23.

The window for claiming the payment will close at 11.59pm on 4 November 2022.

“The Aspiration payment is optional; if contractors do not want to claim it, it will not impact on the contractor’s ability to claim a PQS payment during the declaration period. There is also no requirement to have claimed for a previous PQS to claim an Aspiration payment for PQS 2022/23,” said PSNC.

“If contractors wish to claim for an Aspiration payment, they should review the requirements of the PQS 2022/23, decide which domains they want to work towards meeting by the end of 31st March 2023 and declare this on the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service (MYS) portal. Contractors should click on the ‘Pharmacy Quality Scheme’ tab on MYS to make a claim.”

Contractors will be paid their Aspiration payment on 1 December 2022.
