Reminder: Deadline approaching for completion of the PQS Part 2 2020/21 work

June 10, 2021

Community pharmacy contractors are reminded that the deadline for completing the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) Part 2 2020/21 work is 30th June 2021.

NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I) and the Department of Health and Social Care agreed to PSNC’s request for more flexible timings for completion of the PQS work in December last year. This means that contractors have until 30th June 2021 to meet the following domains they declared as having met (when they made their PQS Part 2 2020/21 declaration between 1st February and 1st March 2021) and collate the evidence to demonstrate that they were compliant with the requirements:

  • Domain 1 – Infection Prevention & Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship;
  • Domain 2 – Prevention;
  • Domain 3 – Risk management; and
  • Domain 5 – Primary Care Network – Business continuity*

Full details can be found on the PSNC website.
