Notify NHS England of intention to provide the Flu Vaccination Service

Community pharmacy contractors are now able to notify NHS England of their intention to begin providing the Flu Vaccination Service, which will commence on 1st September 2018, by completing the notification form available on the NHS Business Services Authority (NHS BSA) website.

This must be done annually therefore even if a contractor provided the service in 2017/18 they must complete this sign-up process again.

Contractors need to complete this form for all their pharmacies from which the Flu Vaccination Service will be offered.
If the form is not completed before provision of the service, claims for payment will not be accepted by the NHS BSA.

The electronic form on the NHS BSA website asks for the Pharmacy Organisation Code; this is the ODS or F code for the pharmacy that is used on the end of month submission to the Pricing Authority. If the form is incorrectly completed it may result in a delay in payment for the service.
