Part 1 PQS 2020/21 Digital Guide for contractors

Part 1 PQS 2020/21 Digital Guide for contractors

A new Pharmacy Quality Scheme for the first part of 2020/21 commenced on 13th July 2020. The focus of the scheme is ensuring community pharmacy contractors and their teams have put in place all reasonable measures to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, protecting both themselves and the people using their services.

To meet the requirements of the new scheme, contractors need to complete all 14 actions set out in a checklist, all of which relate to the response to the pandemic; many contractors will already have undertaken most if not all of the actions in the checklist over the last few months.

This PSNC Digital Guide to the scheme provides a 10 minute guide to the requirements and what contractors need to do to be able to complete the necessary actions and claim payment.

You can also download the presentation slides used in the digital guide.

Find out more about the scheme on the Pharmacy Quality Scheme hub page.
