Our Pharmacy Quality Scheme webpage is now live.
The new Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (2019/20 - 2023/24) builds on the reforms started with the introduction of the Quality Payments Scheme (QPS) to move pharmacists and their teams towards a more clinically focused service. The QPS which was introduced in 2016 continues in 2019/20 under the new name of the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS).

Completing the three CPPE training programmes and assessments does not mean that you will be eligible for a PQS payment for this domain, as there are five quality criteria that you need to meet, and two of these are not covered by our resources. You will also need to ensure that you meet the gateway criteria.
