Catch-up NMS

The catch-up NMS may be offered to eligible patients between 1st September 2021 and 31st March 2022. There is a synergy between the Catch-up NMS and the Pharmacy Quality Scheme Respiratory Criterion.

 

NMS Submissions

The NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) now administers the collection of completed NMS electronic reporting templates from pharmacy contractors on behalf of NHS England.  Pharmacy contractors will no longer receive any reminder and will therefore need to remember to submit their completed quarterly NMS electronic reporting templates to the NHSBSA via the Information Services Portal.

PSNC has notified contractors that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, quarterly submissions for NMS data are not required until January 2022.
