The declaration for PQS must be completed between 3rd February and 28th February 2020. Contractors must meet all the quality criteria within each domain to be eligible for a PQS payment. If you require any further information on PCNs and how to achieve the PQS criterion, please click here.

GMLPC Support

GMLPC are currently in the process of finalising the name of your Community Pharmacy Primary Care Network (PCN) lead.
We will be contacting you in due course to inform you of the name of your PCN lead, the Pharmacy name and the ODS code in accordance to PQS PCN domain guidance provided by NHSE. All correspondence relating to PCNs which will allow you to claim the PQS are being sent via the PCN engagement email hubs. Please note that these emails have been sent to your shared NHS mail email address. We would strongly encourage you to engage and monitor your emails to ensure you have evidence of engagement, are informed of the PCN community pharmacy lead in your area and take any actions as instructed.

PCN Lead Opportunities

We would like to express a huge thank you to those of you who put your names forward to express an interest in being one of our PCN leads. Further information is available here:
PSNC Briefing 047/19: Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Guidance for community pharmacy contractors on the Primary Care Networks domain

We will be re-sending requests for expressions of interest to areas who have not sent any nominations. If we receive more than one expression of interest in any network, we will then facilitate a vote by contractors in the network to elect the PCN lead. If the area has nominated one lead, we will be sending further guidance on next steps to the appointed PCN lead. We encourage you to monitor your emails over the next few weeks to ensure we can support you to engage with PCNs and meet the PQS criterion for the PCN domain.
