Challenging Times


We are aware that all of you will be experiencing difficulties due to the funding challenges facing community pharmacy.
Please rest assured that as your LPC we are working with both the PSNC and NPA to help lobbying the Department of Health and government hard on this issue.
One area that is proving problematic is the availability and pricing of branded generics.
The PSNC really need to know if you are paying above the drug tariff for these. You can report instances here.
Please take the time to do this as without the information the PSNC team are not able to lobby effectively.
There are a number of things you can look at to help increase your pharmacy income:
Are you delivering all the advanced services on offer?
Each MUR you carry out is worth £28 – that’s £11,200 for delivering the limit of 400.
You could earn between £20-£28 per NMS,£9.14 per flu vaccination given and £12.50 per NUMSAS consultation.
