Pharmacy Quality Scheme


Following the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, PSNC agreed the requirements for a new Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) for 2020/21 with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE&I).

The scheme has two parts, the first of which was announced on 13th July 2020. The focus of the Part 1 scheme is ensuring community pharmacy contractors and their teams have put in place all reasonable measures to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, protecting both themselves and the people using their services.
