Pharmacy contractors reminded to complete CPAF screening process by 31 August


Share post:

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has been reminding contractors to complete the 2022/23 Community Pharmacy Assurance Framework (CPAF) screening questionnaire by midnight on Wednesday, 31 August 2022.

As a result of NHS regulations introduced at the end of 2020, completion of CPAF is now a requirement of the Terms of Service. “Therefore, contractors must complete the screening questionnaire and, if required, the full CPAF questionnaire,” said PSNC.

It has also recommended that any contractor who has yet to do so takes immediate action. “It should only take approximately 10-20 minutes to complete.”

Information and instructions on how to complete the screening questionnaire has been shared either via an email from the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) or from their own Head Office.

Contractors are advised to contact NHSBSA by emailing [email protected] if they have not received details of the questionnaire, or if they have any problems or queries completing the questionnaire.

PSNC has also published PSNC Briefing 017/22: CPAF screening process for 2022/23, which provides guidance for contractors on the CPAF screening process and also includes the screening questions for 2022/23.
