Further information on the DMS is available in the Drug Tariff and the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) website.
Monthly reports showing the number of complete and incomplete claims made by Pharmacies are available.
These reports contain detailed pharmacy data and a summary at STP level with a national running total.
The detailed pharmacy data includes a separate row for each claim that a pharmacy made. Each row includes information about the stages that were claimed and the amount paid.
The month refers to the month in which the pharmacy submitted their claim to the NHSBSA.
