If you wish to query the number of items processed for a single month due to your payment dropping below a threshold, please submit the recheck form on our website, ticking the item count box and entering any relevant details in the additional information box.

Where total monthly payments in relation to prescriptions passed for pricing for the period April to November 2016 are less than the amount which would have been paid had the payment been calculated on an annual basis, pharmacy contractors may make a claim for a top up payment to the NHSCB (NHS England).

English Pharmacy contractors should submit, by the following 31 July, copies of FP34 statements for the relevant period (April to November) as evidence of the total number of prescription items passed for pricing during this period.
