COVID-19 pharmacy contractors’ home delivery service payment schedule

The first payment to pharmacy contractors for the COVID-19 home delivery service is due on Wednesday 1 July.

From 9 April 2020, NHS England and NHS Improvement commissioned two home delivery services from community pharmacies to ensure delivery of prescribed medicines and appliances to vulnerable patients during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The pandemic delivery service (essential payment) will be paid on the same line of your schedule of payments as the transitional payment. It will show as a total figure.
