PSNC Briefing 026/18: Quality Payments – Evidence checklist (April 2018)

Please note, the interim Quality Payments Scheme for the first six months of 2017/18 has now ended. No decisions have been made by the Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England on the future of Quality Payments beyond the first six months of 2018; this will be a matter for discussion with PSNC, once substantive negotiations for 2018/19 commence.

PSNC regularly receives queries from contractors and pharmacy teams regarding what evidence they need to retain to demonstrate they have met the gateway and quality criteria for the Quality Payments Scheme.

This PSNC Briefing provides contractors with examples of what constitutes acceptable evidence, in a checklist format they can use to confirm they have the necessary evidence for the June 2018 review point. It is important that contractors have this evidence to assure themselves that they meet all the Gateway and Quality Criteria requirements; as well as to be able to provide this evidence to the NHS BSA provider assurance team that will undertake verification checks on behalf of NHS England to ensure that these requirements are met.
