Patient Safety is a priority for everyone working within community pharmacy. Pharmacy owners and teams invest a significant amount of time and effort in developing a patient safety culture, increasing the levels of incident and near miss reporting as well as sharing learning and top tips across the sector.
As part of this, members of the Community Pharmacy Patient Safety Group have been supporting their pharmacy teams to meet the new quality criteria included as part of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework.
We have also worked closely with PSNC to develop templates and worked examples for the specific criteria relating to patient safety:
- You can now access templates for the monthly and annual Patient Safety Report, a walk-through document and worked examples via the PSNC website at psnc.org.uk/safetyreport.
- You can also access templates and worked examples of a Risk Review via the PSNC website at psnc.org.uk/services-commissioning/essential-services/quality-payments/quality-payments-risk-management/.
