Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the Prime Minister's statement in the coronavirus briefing of 10 February 2021 on reimbursing community pharmacies, when he plans to convert into grants the advanced payments given to community pharmacies to support them with covid-19-related costs.

The Department has no plans to do so. We have recently reached an agreement with the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee that pharmacy contractors can now claim for additional costs incurred between 1 March 2020 and 31 March 2021. The increased advance payments of £370 million will be recovered between October 2021 to March 2022 following payment of claims for additional COVID-19 costs.
