Community pharmacy contractors that wish to take part in the Quality Payments Scheme must have an NHSmail account for their pharmacy by the review points (28th April 2017 and 24th November 2017).
In order to gain Quality Points at the April review period, pharmacies MUST have evidence that they have applied for an NHSmail account by 1st February 2017.
Contractors that wish to apply for an NHSmail account for their pharmacy can do so by emailing the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org (by 1st February 2017):
- Trading name of pharmacy;
- Owner’s name;
- Address, including postcode (for the premises the NHSmail address will apply to);
- Pharmacy ODS code (F code);
- Pharmacy telephone number; and
- Current pharmacy email address.
Contractors with multiple pharmacies may submit this information via one email, providing details for each pharmacy premises; this spreadsheet template can be used for collating the information on individual pharmacies within a group. For this reason, pharmacy teams working within multiple pharmacy groups may want to check with their head office before requesting an NHSmail address for their pharmacy.
Full information on how to do this can be found on the PSNC Website
