PSNC Briefing 030/21: Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Guidance for Pharmacy PCN Leads on the Primary Care Network domain

Published on: 24th August 2021 | Updated on: 10th June 2022

The continued development of Primary Care Networks (PCNs) across England remains a key part of implementing the NHS Long Term Plan (LTP) and it is of great importance that community pharmacy is a fully integrated part of the networks. The Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2021/22 includes one domain which seeks to encourage pharmacies to collaborate and work together to engage effectively with PCNs.

This PSNC Briefing contains guidance for Pharmacy PCN Leads on how they can support the contractors in their PCN to achieve these elements of the scheme.  Pharmacy PCN Leads should additionally read and refer to the PSNC Briefing 029/21: Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Guidance for pharmacy contractors on the PCN domain to ensure they are clear on what needs to be in place for their own pharmacy to successfully complete this domain.
