Primary care support services online portal coming soon


Primary care support services online portal coming soon

February 9, 2016

Primary Care Support England (PCSE) are currently developing and intend to shortly launch a new online portal which all community pharmacies in England will be required to use if they want to order NHS stationery. Further information is available here.

The portal will initially provide pharmacy contractors with a quick and easy way for ordering and tracking supplies including pre-printed forms, Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) tokens and other NHS stationery. The portal will replace the contacts and channels contractors currently use to order PCSE supplies.

Over time, it is anticipated that the portal will become the main route for accessing additional primary care support services, including EPS payments (anticipated October to December 2016) and straightforward pharmacy market entry online applications (anticipated April to June 2017).

At the time of writing, PCSE will shortly invite all pharmacies in England to pre-register (with full details of how to do so) for the portal with the aim for it to be available to pharmacies in West Yorkshire from 8th March 2016 and then to all other pharmacies in England from 29th March 2016.  

If pharmacy contractors have further queries around registering on the portal, or about the new process, please get in touch with PCSE at
