We are happy to have acted on behalf of an existing local pharmacy contractor in Sunderland to successfully oppose two new pharmacy applications close to their premises.

We are delighted to announce that we have secured a new standard hours pharmacy contract with associated GP services for clients in Upper Heyford near Bicester.

We are really proud that Rushport was voted "Winner - Best Strategic Consultants" by the judges at the HealthInvestor Award 2021 on 13 September 2021. Thank you!

THE NEW PHARMACY ACCESS SCHEME - IS YOUR PHARMACY GOING TO RECEIVE PAYMENTS?

If your pharmacy currently receives additional payments via the Pharmacy Access Scheme (PhAS) then you should check if you are already on the list for the new scheme starting in 2022 or consider applying for a review.

In this guest post by Pharmacy Mentor, we simplify and break down the process of setting up a Distance Selling Pharmacy in the UK.

Every month is busy, but May was notable for the number of NHS decisions we received.

We recently acted for the owner of a 100 hour pharmacy who could no longer afford to operate it for the extended hours. We were able to relocate a 40 hour pharmacy to replace their 100 hour contract, but in this case it was a very high risk option.

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully completed work on a new medical centre project in Ware, Hertfordshire. Rushport was appointed by the developers of the new medical centre to secure a new pharmacy tenant. We were able to secure the tenant and then act for them to relocate their existing pharmacy to the development. The new pharmacy opened this week and looks amazing!

We are pleased to announce another new standard hours contract approval for a client in Warrington.

We are delighted to announce that we have secured consent for a new standard hours pharmacy to open in Rainham. The case was a complex one and involved an oral hearing where we had to make an additional application to amend the opening hours for the pharmacy. Our application to amend the opening hours was accepted, but this triggered a further referral of the application to interested parties. In the end Primary Care Appeals accepted the request to amend the opening hours, approved the application and refused the objector's attempts to have the case remitted back to NHS England for a fresh determination.
