End of the Pandemic Delivery Service
From February 24th 2022 there is no longer a legal duty to self-isolate when notified as either a positive case or a non-exempt close contact, and the government will cease all support measures for this from that date.
This means that from 24th February 2022, NHS Test and Trace will no longer issue any 8-digit NHS Test and Trace Account IDs which is the unique code needed to enable patients to access the Pandemic Delivery Service and is recorded by contractors as part of offering the service.
Pharmacy contractors can still make prescription deliveries to eligible patients who have a unique code number issued on or before 23rd February 2022 during the maximum 10-day window for self-isolation until March 5th 2022.
No medicine deliveries should be made as part of the Pandemic Delivery Service after 5th March 2022.
Claims for the Advanced part of the service (i.e. for deliveries) must be submitted no later than 5th April 2022 to be remunerated for any deliveries made on or before 5th March 2022.
The payment for the Essential service element of the Pandemic Delivery Service will continue until 31st March 2022.
