PQS: Who is going to be your Pharmacy PCN Lead?

PQS: Who is going to be your Pharmacy PCN Lead?

October 8, 2019

PSNC has published two Briefings to support community pharmacy contractors and LPCs on working together to enable contractors to meet the Primary Care Networks (PCN) domain of the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS).

The PCN domain requires contractors to be able to demonstrate that their pharmacy, and all of the other pharmacies within the PCN footprint who wish to engage with a PCN, have agreed a collaborative approach to engaging with their PCN. This approach must include agreement on a single channel of communication by appointing a named lead representative (Pharmacy PCN Lead) for all of the community pharmacies who wish to engage with their PCN in the PCN footprint.

Further information on the PCN domain of the PQS can be found at: psnc.org.uk/pqspcn
