PQS 2021/22 webinar
PSNC will be holding a webinar to support contractors to take part in the 2021/22 PQS.
Scheduled for Tuesday 14th September at 7.30pm, Rosie Taylor, Head of Service Development at PSNC, will talk contractors through the new gateway criteria and domain requirements for the 2021/22 PQS. As well as describing the differences from the previous Schemes, Rosie will also outline the guidance and resources developed by PSNC, plus where to find further information and support.
PSNC has published various resources for contractors to assist them with meeting the gateway and domain requirements of PQS, including PSNC Briefing 034/21: Pharmacy Quality Scheme – Important dates for the diary, which lists the important dates for the 2021/22 scheme.
Additional PSNC resources are currently being finalised and will be published soon; we will alert you when these are available through our normal communication channels.
