Just under 2 weeks to complete Pharmacy Access Scheme 2022 review application

Just under 2 weeks to complete Pharmacy Access Scheme 2022 review application

January 19, 2022

Community pharmacy contractors eligible to apply for a Pharmacy Access Scheme (PhAS) review are reminded that they have until midnight on 4th February 2022 to complete their applications on the dedicated NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) web review portal.

PhAS 2022 started on 1st January 2022 and the review application window opened on 4th January 2022.


Contractors applying for a review are strongly encouraged to read PhAS: contractor guidance on submitting an eligibility review application – distance grounds only before starting their applications. Please note, applications must be made using the NHSE&I web review portal and it is important to gather all the evidence you need for an application before you start it.

Those contractors seeking a review are also advised to ensure the pharmacy is registered on NHSBSA’s Manage Your Service (MYS) portal to provide CPCS, because PhAS 2022 payments are dependent on this.
