The process for accepting the new specifications and terms will differ for independent pharmacies and large multiples.
For independents – you will need to logon to PharmOutcomes where you will see a module called ‘Public Health Contract Variation Proposal" (From the Council)’. Pharmacies will need to follow the instructions within that module. You will be asked to download a letter explaining the variation, follow a link to access the specifications and terms and accept the variation by completing
the module and submitting.
For large multiples (Boots, Lloyds, Well Bestway, Rowlands, Tesco, Asda) – the Council will contact your regional or head office contacts directly by way of email. The email address used will the one supplied previously to the Council for contracting purposes. The email will ask them to download a letter explaining the variation, a link to access the specifications and terms and to accept the variation by signing the letter and returning it by email.
Please look out for these and ensure you complete the process to ensure your contract with the council is extended and there is no break in service.
Should you have any queries regarding Pharmoutcomes please don't hesitate to contact me. If you have any contacts regarding the extension or the variations please contact Colleen Briton. Details contained in the letter.
