Reminder CPAF screening process starts today

June 3, 2019

The 2019/20 Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework (CPAF) screening questionnaire is now available for completion. It will be open from today (Monday 3rd June 2019) until Sunday 30th June 2019.

Level 2 is the minimum standard expected to demonstrate general compliance with the terms of service.

Community pharmacies should have already received last week information and instructions on how to complete the screening questionnaire either via email from the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) or from their own Head Office. Contractors are advised to contact NHSBSA by emailing nhsbsa.cpaf@nhs.net if they have not received details of the questionnaire, or if they have any problems or queries completing the questionnaire.

Community pharmacies are able to view the questionnaire here. Please note this is in PDF format and cannot be submitted.

More information is available in PSNC’s news story of 17 May 2019 and the updated PSNC Briefing to help support and guide contractors and NHSBSA’s website.

Finally, contractors are aware that negotiations on the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) for 2019/20 and beyond are underway but are reminded that the terms of service including the clinical governance requirements of the CPCF must be complied with throughout the year.
