This PSNC Briefing provides a checklist of important dates for the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) which relate to services. It also highlights important dates for the 2022/23 Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) and Terms of Service requirements, as well as dates when relevant news stories have been published which highlight resources for these services/requirements.
This Briefing is a ‘live’ document and will be updated as and when announcements and dates are confirmed. Therefore, community pharmacy contractors are welcome to print out this Briefing for reference; however, they should be alert to the fact that additional information may be added to the document and are encouraged to check: psnc.org.uk/briefings to ensure they have the latest version of the Briefing. Contractors are also encouraged to sign up to our newsletters at psnc.org.uk/enews so the latest information is delivered straight to their inbox.
This Briefing is version 5 of the checklist. New additions to the Briefing have been highlighted in red as ‘NEW ADDITION TO THIS BRIEFING’ and the ‘Information and suggested action’ boxes have been highlighted in grey to make it easier for contractors to see what additional information has been added.
The important dates and checklist starts from the beginning of September 2022, even though the Briefing was orginally published in November 2022 as this is when the contractor announcement on the Year 4 and 5 deal for community pharmacy was made; some of these previous dates and actions may still be relevant to contractors. Those that are no longer relevant to all have been included for completeness and information purposes only.
The important dates and checklist resource is also available below as a Word document so LPCs can choose to add in important dates and actions for local services or contractors can choose to add in important dates relevant to their pharmacy or additional deadlines they are working towards.
