Quality Payments: One month left until review date


Quality Payments: One month left until review date

January 15, 2019

The February 2019 review point (15th February 2019) for the Quality Payments Scheme is fast approaching and the declaration window for claiming for a quality payment opens in just over a fortnight (4th February 2019).

Many community pharmacy contractors are well on their way to meeting the gateway criteria and some if not all the quality criteria for the Quality Payments Scheme. Contractors are, however, reminded of PSNC Briefing 066/18: Quality Payments – PSNC resources which highlights all the resources available from PSNC to assist contractors with meeting the criteria.

Contractors are reminded that if they wish to claim for Quality Payments using the new NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service application, they should register as soon as possible, to ensure the registration process is complete before the declaration period begins.

Additionally, contractors are encouraged to download the NHSBSA gateway criteria report on a weekly basis to see if the national datasets show they have met four out of the five gateway criteria and if not, take corrective action as soon as possible to ensure they meet the criteria by the review point.

PSNC has also recently updated and added new Quality Payments FAQs; these can all be found at psnc.org.uk/qpsfaq
