Provision of one specified advanced service is one of the four gateway criteria for the community pharmacy Quality Payments Scheme. A key role for pharmacists is supporting patients with medicines optimisation via the medicines use review (MUR) service.
As a pharmacist you will need to be accredited to deliver the MUR service by successfully completing an MUR assessment set by a higher education institution (HEI). We host an MUR assessment on behalf of the University of Manchester and have several resources to support you in successfully completing the assessment.
A good starting point is to take a look at our MUR FAQs for more information.
Once you have decided to work through the MUR assessment access our MURs: preparing to become accredited guide. The guide explains the structure of the assessment and signposts to useful learning resources.
MUR guidance changes regularly, so to make sure you stay up to date and you are familiar with the key resources check the PSNC website information.
From March 2021 the MUR service will be phased out. As a result of this you will no longer need MUR accreditation in order to offer the new medicine service (NMS). This means completion of the assessment may no longer be required. Please check that you still need to complete the assessment, as we are unable to offer refunds once accessed.
