From April 2024, PCSE will no longer process payments made by cheque. Therefore, application fee payments must be made via bank transfer. 

When your application documentation is received via email to or by post to Primary Care Support England, PO Box 350, Darlington, DL1 9QN, a member of the Pharmacy Market Administration Services (PMAS) team will contact you via email. 

You will be issued with a unique payment reference code for you to use when you make payment.

Please refrain from making payment until you have been issued a payment reference code.

If submitting via PCSE Online, you must select the bank transfer option and use your application number as your payment reference code.
