PQS Part 2 payment window opens

PQS Part 2 payment window opens

February 5, 2021

The payment window for the Pharmacy Quality Scheme (PQS) 2020/21 Part 2 is now open.

Contractors who wish to, can claim a PQS Part 2 payment for any domains they feel they have met and will have the evidence to support. The PQS Part 2 payment can be claimed up until 23:59 on 1st March 2021 through the MYS portal.The submission for a PQS payment is optional for pharmacy contractors.

To qualify for a PQS Part 2 payment, contractors must have declared that they completed all the requirements within the PQS Part 1 Essential Criteria Checklist and  submitted a declaration for Part 1 on the Manage Your Service (MYS) portal by 23:59 on 29th January 2021.

For support completing your PQS Part 2 declaration please see our PSNC Briefing

Please see the PQS Hub page for more information

Completing the declaration and validation of the Gateway criteria:
Contractors can start adding data on the MYS portal when it opens at 9am on 4th February 2021 and they will be able to re-enter the portal to add further information before the deadline. However, contractors must remember to re-enter the MYS portal and submit the declaration before Monday 1st March 2021 at 23:59, otherwise they will not be entitled to a PQS payment.

Late declarations will not be accepted and if contractors claimed an Aspiration payment but fail to claim a PQS payment within the required time, the Aspiration payment will be recovered as part of the reconciliation process. Contractors are therefore encouraged to ensure they give themselves enough time to complete the process.

Contractors are reminded that once their declaration has been submitted, even if submitted in error, it cannot then be altered. It is therefore imperative that contractors are satisfied that their declaration is complete and can demonstrate that the information they submit is correct.
