NHS Fraud Checking Notification

From 1 July 2016 pharmacy contractors will be required by their terms of service, before supplying the drug or appliance, to advise the person claiming exemption from payment of NHS prescription charges – where evidence is required but not provided – that NHS checks are routinely undertaken to verify that such persons are exempt from payment of NHS prescription charges, as part of arrangements for preventing or detecting fraud or error.

PSNC have produced a briefing to support community pharmacy teams about this change and how to make these questions routine. It can be found here
