  1. People’s hard earned money is lost through this means .no one seem to complain. PCN anambr or whomever is in charge should do better. Before certain things are brought to use ,it should be verified. What is the essence of this rush when pharmacists are cheating themselves. This platform should be reviewed and revised. Room for editing should be created. Asking for email and other information is nonsense of the page keeps stealing money .

    • Hello sir, If you encounter any problem while paying your PCN dues please kindly state the issue you encountered and might be of help to you

  2. I initiated a payment for my PCN Annual licence renewal on this portal by 4.59pm on the 31st of January 2022 for #4500 since I fall into that payment category. However, I noticed that I was debited #4,685 before I even generated an RR Code. My present dilemma is that no receipt was printed for the transaction on the portal because the transaction was not concluded, but I have been debited. So, what do I do next?
