The quality payments review date is drawing near. In the current tough financial environment pharmacy contractors need to ensure that they claim whatever is available from the NHS. Contractors need to ensure that they meet as many quality payment criteria as possible to maximise their QPS payment.

Risk Management is involved in a number of criteria in the QPS scheme, specifically

  • On the day of the review, 80% of all registered pharmacy professionals working at the pharmacy have satisfactorily completed the CPPE Risk Management training
  • has an example of a risk review that the pharmacy team at the premises have drawn up for a risk in that pharmacy
  • has a written patient safety report at premises level available for inspection
  • the pharmacy actively identifies and manages the risks associated with specified look-alike sound-alike errors (LASA)
  • the pharmacy uploads any LASA incident reports to the NRLS
