NHS England publish national pharmacy clinical audit

October 24, 2018

NHS England has today (24th October 2018) published the paperwork for the 2018/19 national community pharmacy clinical audit; this must be completed by all pharmacy contractors.

The focus of the audit is the provision of advice to people with diabetes on the importance of them receiving an annual seasonal influenza vaccination. The audit has been timed to take place during the flu vaccination season, so that people with diabetes can be encouraged to be vaccinated and where they have not yet been vaccinated and the pharmacy offers the NHS flu vaccination service, they can be offered a vaccination at the pharmacy.

The audit will generally need to be conducted over a one-week period, selected by the pharmacy contractor, during October, November or the first half of December; the data collection needs to be completed by 16th December 2018 and the audit data needs to be submitted to NHS England’s web-based portal by midnight on 30th December 2018.

Further information on the 2018/19 CPCF national clinical audit on flu vaccination for people with diabetes can be found at: psnc.org.uk/audit
