Contractors must use the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service portal to make their PQS declaration between 9am on 3rd February 2020 and 11.59pm on 28th February 2020.
Many pharmacy teams are well on their way to meeting the gateway criteria and some if not all the domains for the PQS.
Contractors are, however, reminded of the following resources:
- PSNC Briefing 059/19: Pharmacy Quality Scheme – PSNC resources – this highlights all the resources available from PSNC to assist contractors with meeting the gateway criteria and domains.
- NHSBSA declaration data (under 'PQS datasets') – this is available to download on a weekly basis to check whether the national datasets show your pharmacy has met three out of the four gateway criteria.
Additionally, the team at PSNC has received a number of queries on PQS and has compiled the answers to those asked in recent weeks. Read them now: ow.ly/VYRa50xJLM5
