Tuesday, December 19, 2017

Following extensive negotiations with Scottish Government colleagues, CPS has secured an additional £1.3m payment for the pharmacy network to support cash flow and winter resilience. This is over and above the monies release in circular PCA(P)(2017)15. This funding will be paid with October's prescriptions i.e. payment to bank in December 2017. Full details were communicated in a letter to our chairman Martin Green last night.

The negotiating team are very grateful to the  contractor network for market information that is being fed back to the office. This has been a contributing factor in securing the payment.
