PQS Declaration and the PCN Business Continuity Domain

PQS Declaration and the PCN Business Continuity Domain

February 12, 2021

PSNC is continuing to receive some queries regarding interpretation of the requirements to meet Domain 5, the Primary Care Network (PCN) Business continuity element of the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2020/21 Part 2.

Guidance, including PSNC Briefings issued in October 2020, clearly highlighted in relation to Domain 5 that participation in a facilitated discussion between pharmacy contractors chaired by the Pharmacy PCN Lead was a key requirement.

An email chain or WhatsApp exchange does not constitute a discussion for the purposes of this domain, nor does it allow for the intention, which is to share, learn and therefore develop a collated document that further supports business continuity plans more fully, to be achieved.
