PSNC is reminding community pharmacy contractors that the March 31 deadline for four clinical governance aspects of their terms of service is fast approaching.
The requirements are:
- An annual IG Toolkit
- An annual CPPQ and publish the results
- A clinical audit. Contractors need to conduct two audits each year: one on a topic of their choice and one determined by NHS England (NB no national audit has been determined for 2017/18).
- An annual complaints report, with a copy sent to the local NHS team. This needs to be done as soon after March 31 as possible.
To help support contractors, PSNC’s Regulations and Support Team has produced a quick reference guide PSNC Briefing 001/18: Upcoming clinical governance deadlines – actions to be completed by 31 March 2018.
