Pharmacies are at the heart of high street healthcare, and we understand the complex pressures facing this sector.
Our tailor-made products and services can help your business to reduce these pressures and achieve financial objectives.
Pharmacies play an essential role in promoting wellbeing and health in communities across the country. It’s no secret that the UK Government sees them as an important way of improving the range of health services accessible to the public on the high street.
Managing your day-to-day finances
With the unpredictable nature of payments from the NHS Prescription Pricing Division, pharmacies often need specialist cashflow help. We offer invoice finance to unlock the value of your NHS FP34cs, and can forward up to 90% of the value of those invoices within 24 hours. The remaining value, less a service fee*, would be paid to you once your customer pays.
*Service fee is quoted either as a percentage of the volume of invoices submitted for financing, or as an annual flat fee which is charged monthly on a pro-rata basis.
All lending is subject to status and our lending criteria. The right to decline any application is reserved.
