Quality Payments Scheme

The Department of Health (DH) is introducing a Quality Payments Scheme as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework in 2017/18. This will involve payments being made to community pharmacy contractors meeting certain quality criteria, with funding taken from the overall funding for 2017/18 of £2.592 billion.

At Community Pharmacy Lancashire we want to help guide you through the process. To do this we are highlighting key criterion and providing you with the knowledge and resources to meet the standards set.

To help you through the process, CPL has produced a quick check poster for the pharmacy wall and a supplementary document to go with the poster. 

Full information on the Quality Payments Scheme can be found on the PSNC Quality Payments hub page:
