PSNC: No mandatory clinical audit for pharmacy contractors in 2023/24


Share post:

The Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) has confirmed that the community pharmacy contractors are ‘not required’ to undertake a contractor-chosen or an NHS England determined clinical audit in 2023/24.

“A clinical audit on anticoagulants is included in the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2023/24. If contractors choose to not participate in PQS, and therefore do not complete the anticoagulant clinical audit, there is still no requirement to complete two clinical audits in 2023/24,” said PSNC.

“The Department of Health and Social Care and NHS England have also committed to consider, during 2023/24, the removal of the requirement for a contractor-chosen clinical audit permanently.”
