Acting on behalf of the Day Lewis Pharmacy group, PSC have successfully secured another new ‘standard pharmacy contract’, our fourteenth since the current regulations came into force.

We were instructed to make an application on behalf of Day Lewis in Monkton Heathfield, near Taunton in Somerset.  This is a large new residential development adjacent to an established housing estate.

NHS England received four applications in total from a mixture of multiple pharmacy groups and local independents.  Our application was approved by NHS England in preference to the other three applications based largely on the offering the best opening hours.

Appeals were lodged against both the approval of our contract and the refusal of one of the other applications.  The Appeal Authority upheld the original decision without the need to hold an oral hearing.

PSC have acted for the applicant in almost 25% of all new standard contract applications approved since the current regulations were introduced in September 2012.
