New updated paper FP34C forms

From October 2021 the NHSBSA will be sending out a new version of the FP34 form, this form will be continued to be issued until 2022, after that date all FP34c submissions will be through the Manage Your Service (MYS) portal.

Note: Pharmacy contractors who continue to use the paper FP34C submission route will not be eligible for the early advance payment.

This new FP34C form now includes new fields to bring it in line with MYS, including the addition of the Serious Shortage Protocols (SSP). The new FP34C has removed the tick box for the sections on ETP Token for non-payment, repeat authorising forms and the removal of MUR and staff hour declaration. The updated form will also separate EPS and paper based prescription figures.

There has also been an update in the wording of sorting and submissions of forms’ to include more detail on the ETP submission sorting and submissions of forms’Each month, contractors must submit tokens for non-payment excluding those for age exempt patients, prescriptions where only free-of-charge (FOC) items are prescribed and where Real Time Exemption Checking (RTEC) confirms an exemption.’
