Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Part 2 Evidence Checklist & PharmOutcomes Framework

Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Part 2 Evidence Checklist & PharmOutcomes Framework

November 17, 2020

PSNC Briefing 041/20

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) Part 2 declaration.

It is important that contractors have this evidence to assure themselves that they meet all the requirements for each criteria within a domain, as well as to be able to provide this evidence to the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Provider Assurance Team, if requested, who may undertake validation checks on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I).

PharmOutcomes PQS framework

As contractors and their teams complete each criterion, they can mark this on PharmOutcomes to track their progress with achieving the quality criteria. This can be accessed by logging into PharmOutcomes and selecting ‘Assessments’. The framework is listed as ‘Pharmacy Quality Scheme 2020/21 – Part 2’.


If you have any queries on this PSNC Briefing, the PQS PharmOutcomes framework or you require more information, please contact the PSNC Services Team.
