Medicines Use Review (MUR)/New Medicine Service (NMS) quarterly submission


Medicines Use Review (MUR)/New Medicine Service (NMS) quarterly submission

NHS England is notifying contractors of the change to the way in which this data is to be submitted. The NHS Business Services Authority (NHS BSA) will be managing the submission process for pharmacies in Greater Manchester effective of Jan 2017. Therefore your quarterly reports should no longer be submitted to agm.optemetry-pharmacy@nhs.net.

Pharmacies will have two electronic options for submitting the data, this new process will start with the third quarter (October – December) which you are expected to submit in January.   The NHS BSA will be contacting your pharmacy via email in the coming days/weeks to provide you with further details on the process.

Currently there is information on the changes and report templates on the BSA website. The link below contains all of the user guidance needed to submit the MUR/NMS information.

NHS England suggests that Contractors regularly access their emails for the information so that the specified deadlines are not missed.

Please note submission of the MUR/NMS activity data on a quarterly basis is an ongoing requirement of your Terms of Service (ToS).
