Pharmacy Quality Scheme

The Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS)  is the new name for the Quality Payments Scheme, which forms part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF).

In July 2019, a new PQS was announced for the remainder of 2019/20 as part of the five-year deal for the CPCF. The new scheme has funding of £75 million and a review point in February 2020.

Changes to the PQS are summarised in PSNC Briefing 029/19: The Pharmacy Quality Scheme 2019/20.

The PSNC website give full details of the PQS.
