Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Evidence checklist (December 2019)

Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Evidence checklist (December 2019)

December 11, 2019

This PSNC Briefing provides community pharmacy contractors with examples of suggested evidence, in a checklist format, that they can use to confirm they have the necessary evidence ready to make their Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) declaration between 9am on 3rd February 2020 and 11.59pm on 28th February 2020. It is important that contractors have this evidence to assure themselves that they meet all the gateway criteria and quality domains that they intend to declare that they meet; as well as to be able to provide this evidence to the NHS Business Services Authority Provider Assurance Team (if requested) who will undertake validation checks on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement to ensure that these requirements are met.

Contractors are required to be able to provide evidence of how they meet the criteria; if they do not have this evidence, they put themselves at risk of having one or more quality domains recovered or in the case of the gateway criteria ALL their PQS payment recovered.

The examples provided as suggested evidence are not exhaustive; other evidence may also be suitable.
