Welcome to Week 4 of our New Year, New Contract campaign.
This week we will be focusing on the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) and why it has been included as a part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF).
The PQS aims to help community pharmacies become more integrated into the wider healthcare system and comprises of six quality domains including risk management and patient safety, prevention of ill health, medicines safety, asthma reviews, digital enablers and integration into local primary care networks (PCNs).
This week’s learning includes a video of Janice Perkins, chair of the Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Group, who discusses why the PQS is important and what it means for community pharmacy.
The learning also includes links to other useful resources such as our PQS webpage, the PSNC and NHS England.
