PEPS update for pharmacy contractors

This is an announcement on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC).

Pharmacy contractors should note that the Pharmacy Earlier Payment Scheme (PEPS) is suspended in respect of any new contractors wishing to join the scheme from 18 March 2021 until further notice. However, applications to join the scheme received by the NHSBSA up to and including 17 March 2021 will be processed as usual.

Pharmacy contractors should note that this change is not reflected in the published March 2021 Drug Tariff.
