PQS: Reminder – Two weeks left to claim your Aspiration payment

PQS: Reminder – Two weeks left to claim your Aspiration payment

October 18, 2019

Community pharmacy contractors have two weeks left to claim their Aspiration payment for the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) as the window for claiming this payment closes on Friday 1st November at 11.59pm.

Contractors are required to claim their Aspiration payment via the NHS Business Services Authority’s (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service (MYS) application.

Contractors are only eligible for an Aspiration payment if they made a declaration at either or both 2018/19 Quality Payments Schemes (June 2018 and/or February 2019) and it can only be paid under the same ODS code as that used in 2018/19. The Aspiration payment is also optional; if contractors do not want to claim it, it will not impact on the contractor’s ability to claim a PQS payment in February 2020.

Contractors will need to decide which domains they intend to meet (when they make their declaration in February 2020) and declare this on the NHSBSA MYS application. The different domains and the quality criteria that contractors need to meet to be able to claim for each domain are listed in PSNC Briefing 041/19: The Pharmacy Quality Scheme 2019/20.

Contractors will be paid their Aspiration payment on 29th November 2019.
