The Contractor Details report is published monthly to include 24 months of reports and lists:
- the OCS Code
- contractor name and trading name
- phone number
- type (pharmacy or appliance)
- start date (if held)
- whether the pharmacy is a private contractor (i.e. can submit FP10PCD Forms)
The list of contractors is based on information supplied to NHS Prescription Services by Area Teams and should be taken as a guide only due to the problems gathering this information and any delays in informing NHS Prescription Services of changes.
Contractors indicated as 'Private - NHS Prescription Services only' captures private prescribing information for controlled drugs Schedule 2 & 3 (Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001) for information purposes.
Community pharmacies who submit FP10PCD forms require a private controlled drug account number which should be used when submitting these forms. This account number should also be used for submitting CD requisition forms and is a different account to the NHS account number used by contractors to submit NHS prescriptions.
The data includes contractors for Isle of Man, Jersey , Guernsey and Alderney.
The NHSBSA does not keep records of contractors from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
