Commenting on the publication of the data, Alastair Buxton, Director of NHS Services at PSNC, said:

“Congratulations to pharmacy teams and LPCs on the phenomenal engagement with the Quality Payments Scheme as reflected by the declaration data over the two review periods. We are delighted to see such high levels of participation; the data published today is a testament to their hard work and commitment to continuously improving the quality of the services they provide to patients and the public. Particularly commendable are the 7,981 contractors who achieved the maximum points for each quality criteria across both review points.

PSNC is very grateful to the LPCs who worked tirelessly to support their contractors to successfully engage with and implement the Quality Payments Scheme.

PSNC has recently had discussions with the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England about transitional arrangements for 2018/19, including the Quality Payments Scheme, and an announcement is expected shortly. PSNC will inform contractors about the transitional arrangements as soon possible.”
