PSC were instructed by an independent pharmacist owner to appeal against the decision of NHS England to exclude the pharmacy from the PhAS scheme.
After an initial consultation we advised the client that we felt they had a strong case and were subsequently instructed to prepare the documentation to appeal the decision.
PSC carried out a very detailed site visit of the area noting various physical barriers that we believed prevented local residents accessing the nearby competing pharmacies including steep hills, poor pathways and major roads. We then prepared a strong supporting document with photographic evidence of the issues local people faced which was subsequently submitted to NHS England within the permitted timescale.
After a long wait our client was advised that the application had been approved on the basis of the evidence supplied and the pharmacy now enjoys the added security of the PhAS payments.
We are delighted to have another satisfied client added to the growing list since PSC started trading just over 5 years ago.
