Have you completed the DMS Declaration of Competence?

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians must complete the Discharge Medicines Service (DMS) Declaration of Competence (DoC) before providing DMS, which became an Essential service earlier this year.

Even pharmacies not yet receiving referrals from hospitals should be ready to provide the service, which includes ensuring staff have completed the relevant training and are competent to offer the service.

As a minimum, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians should read the DMS section of the NHS England and NHS Improvement guidance on the regulations and the DMS toolkit.
