PSNC has announced that community pharmacy contractors can now access support for the Quality Payments Scheme’s June 2018 review point on PharmOutcomes.

The support includes a QPS framework so that pharmacy contractors can track progress and has links to information and resources on the PSNC site, to help in recording required activities and evidence.

Local Pharmaceutical Committees will also be able to access data on pharmacy contractors who are using the PharmOutcomes tool for Quality Payments via their LPC dashboard, said PSNC.

NHS England published guidance on April 30 around the QPS June review point. The guidance reviews matters identified at the November 2017 declaration, and also the changes to the validation process and requirements for meeting the gateway and quality criteria for the June 2018 declaration, as well as what evidence is required.

PSNC has also flagged up two user guides published on the NHS Choices website:

  • Updating NHS Choices profiles user guide;
  • Uploading the Community Pharmacy Patient Questionnaire user.
