PSNC Briefing 014/17: Quality Payments – referrals for asthma reviews (March 2017)

Please note, the declaration period for the Quality Payments Scheme is now finished for the April 2017 review point.

Some of the processes that need to be followed to meet the gateway and quality criteria for the November 2017 review point and the declaration process may be subject to change; therefore, contractors are encouraged to ensure they are signed up to receive PSNC’s e-newsletters so updates on the Quality Payments Scheme for the November 2017 review point are delivered straight to their Inbox. Contractors who are not signed up for PSNC’s e-newsletters can sign up at: psnc.org.uk/enews

This PSNC Briefing provides an overview of how to achieve the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the Quality Payment (QP) Scheme. Further information on the QP Scheme can be found in PSNC Briefing 013/17 Quality Payments – what pharmacy contractors need to do.

PSNC Briefing 068/16, published in November 2016, provided an overview of how to achieve the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the QP Scheme. At that time, some details relating to the gateway and quality criteria for the QP Scheme still needed to be clarified by NHS England, so as further information became available, PSNC included this on the QP pages of the PSNC website (psnc.org.uk/quality). Now that most of the outstanding matters have been clarified, following publication of the NHS England guidance documents, this PSNC Briefing provides revised guidance to contractors on meeting the ‘referrals for asthma reviews’ quality criterion of the QP Scheme.
