New Medicine Service guidance 2012


29 / 05 / 2012

The New Medicine Service guidance has been updated to provide details of the new payment structure that was introduced for the service in May 2012, and information on the loyalty payment to contractors who delivered the service between October 2011 and April 2012.

This guidance replaces the original version, published in November 2011. The NHS Employers organisation and the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) jointly published the comprehensive guidance document for the New Medicine Service (NMS), which is a useful resource for community pharmacists and commissioners.

The guidance includes information that will help to ensure the NMS is both delivered and monitored successfully, such as contractor requirements, reporting arrangements and payment information. There are also a number of helpful templates for community pharmacies to download and use.
