QPS stats demonstrate excellence across sector

Community pharmacy’s response to the quality payments scheme (QPS) has been excellent, England’s deputy chief pharmacist told the Pharmacy Show. Bruce Warner detailed several highlights from the April 2017 review point data of the QPS, including:

• Over 95 per cent of pharmacies in England have 80 per cent of staff – over 70,000 people – trained as Dementia Friends

• Nearly all pharmacies have updated their NHS Choices profiles meaning patients are better able to check opening hours, and the services and facilities on offer

• Around 12,500 high-risk asthma patients have been identified and referred for review

• Approximately 20,000 pharmacy professions are trained to Level 2 safeguarding

• Almost all pharmacies have NHSMail accounts and are enabled to receive and dispense electronic prescriptions

• More than 95 per cent have access to summary care records with well
over 10,000 of the 11,094 pharmacies increasing their use of SCRs to support
clinical care.

The next review date is towards the end of this month and will allow the scheme to be
evaluated, said Mr Warner.
