PSNC is urging contractors to analyse the impact on their finances due to the latest Category M changes as well as the pharmacy funding imposition.

A PSNC briefing note, 057/17, sets out what changes there have been to funding and gives advice about getting the most out of the schedule of payments as well as considering payment timings and reconciling payments. A timeline summarises the funding changes with key dates ahead.
