Prove SCR access for the Pharmacy Quality Scheme 2019/20

You must prove your pharmacy has accessed SCR between 1 October 2019 and the day you make your declaration, to get the points associated with the Digital enablers domain in the new Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2019/20.

The new Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) has been announced for 2019/20, as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) five year deal. 

In order to get your quality points for the Digital enablers domain, you must prove your pharmacy has accessed Summary Care Records (SCR) at least once between 1 October 2019 and the date you make your declaration, in addition to the other quality criteria. You can make your declaration between 9am on 3 February 2020 and 11.59pm on 28 February 2020, on the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service (MYS) application.

Get the full details of the PQS on the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) website

Get the figures for your pharmacy

We publish a spreadsheet every week, detailing SCR access in community pharmacy. The figures in this spreadsheet can be used as proof that your pharmacy has accessed SCR for your declaration. The viewing figures run from Monday to Sunday each week.

Only views on or after Tuesday 1 October 2019, up to the date of your declaration, can be used to fulfil your PQS eligibility requirement. This spreadsheet splits views for the week 30 September - 7 October 2019 so that if you are reliant on a view during this week to meet the eligibility requirement you can check it falls within the qualifying period.
