As part of the Year 4 & 5 funding settlement for community pharmacy, it was agreed that a new Flat Fee payment would be introduced from April 2023. This would be paid to all contractors who dispense at least 101 items a month, up to a national total of £70m on an annual basis.

See the announcement here.

The value of the Flat Fee payment has now been determined at £533 per month, and will be introduced in the April 2023 Drug Tariff.

See NHS Prescription Services announcement.

See the Drug Tariff determination here.

As with all payments, the Flat Fee payments are subject to change throughout the year depending on the overall level of funding delivery to Community Pharmacies. This will be carefully monitored by PSNC and DHSC, and any funding changes will be communicated to pharmacy contractors as soon as they are known.
