Claiming payments and validation of the gateway criteria:
Community pharmacy contractors will be able to claim an early and advanced Aspiration payment of up to 70% of their earning under the PQS 2019/20 (if they participated in the QPS in 2018/19) between 9am on 30th September 2019 and 11.59pm on 1st November 2019.
Further information on the Aspiration payment can be found on the PSNC Aspiration payment page.
Declaration Point for PQS Claim
Contractors will then be able to make a declaration for a PQS payment (based on the criteria they have actually met) between 9am on 3rd February 2020 and 11.59pm on 28th February 2020.
As for previous declarations, contractors wishing to claim a PQS payment will be required to submit their declaration online to the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA); however, for the February 2020 review point, contractors will only be able to claim for a payment via one route, by using the Manage Your Service (MYS) application (contractors will not be able to use Snap Survey as per previous review points to make a declaration).
