Quality Payments: Quick Guide

Quality Payments: Quick Guide

May 14, 2018

Pharmacies must meet four gateway criteria in order to be eligible for any Quality Payments.   There are important changes to two of the gateway criteria for 2018 – NHS Mail and NHS Choices – if you haven’t already started to look at these, don’t assume you’ll quality for payments based on last year – now is the time.  There is a very useful PSNC webinar (five minutes).

Read our  Quick Checklist for achieving the Quality Payments, including some key dates. Barnsley LPC has also kindly shared a guide on how to add bank holiday opening details to your NHS Choices profile (bricks-and-mortar pharmacies).  If you need access to training for Healthy Living Pharmacy Leadership or Health Champions, don’t forget we offer the Pharmacy Complete distance learning package in these two areas, free to pharmacy contractors in Devon.

  • Act now. Leave yourself plenty of time in case of any issues with HLP registration, NHS mail, NHS Choices, SCR usage etc. (E.g. HLP registration on the RSPH website can take at least 10 working days.)
  • Use PharmOutcomes to help you plan your work and gather evidence for your claim. All contractors have access to modules for Quality Payments and asthma referrals, thanks to PSNC. Find out more.
