Quality Payments: One month until the review date

Quality Payments: One month until the review date

May 29, 2018

The June 2018 review date (29th June 2018) for the Quality Payments Scheme is fast approaching and the NHS Business Services Authority’s portal for the Quality Payment online declaration is due to open in just under a fortnight.

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 027/18: Quality Payments – PSNC resources, which highlights all the resources available from PSNC to assist contractors with meeting the criteria.

Contractors are also reminded of the importance of reading the below NHS England guidance documents to ensure they are fully briefed on the Quality Payments Scheme:

  • NHS England – Pharmacy Quality Payments Guidance for the June 2018 Declaration (published 30th April 2018);
  • NHS England – Pharmacy Quality Payments Quality Criteria Guidance (published 27th February 2017); and
  • NHS England – Pharmacy Quality Payments Gateway Criteria Guidance (published 23rd December 2016).

All three documents are available on the NHS England website.
