Contract Payment Claims

Contract Payment Claims

Please note all payments for Public Health services are automated and paid quarterly by Quit Manager and PharmOutcomes. All activity must be recorded using these systems to ensure payment is made before the end of each quarter. It is advised to input direct into the PharmOutcomes database while delivering the public health services. If the Provider does not have an internet device within the consultation room it is recommended that the data is transferred on to the database as soon as possible but must upload data within 10 days of the consultation in order to secure payment. No payments will be made via paper claims.

DBS Checks

DBS Checks

DBS checks are provided by Hertfordshire County Council (HCC). Please contact Phinvoices@hertfordshire.gov.uk  or by calling the admin team on 01438 844088 who will put you in contact with the right person to arrange this. Each DBS check costs £60.00 (which is made up of £44.00 for the DBS check itself and £16.00 to administrate the check).

In addition, the LPC strongly encourage you once you have received the updated DBS check from HCC, to then register for the update service online (https://www.gov.uk/dbs-update-service). It is cheaper than renewing on a three yearly basis with no additional administration costs.
