Just over a week left to submit valproate audit data

6,514 contractors have submitted their valproate audit data; have you submitted your data yet?

By 31st March 2023, all community pharmacy contractors must have completed the 2022/23 national clinical audit on valproate over a six-week consecutive period and have submitted their data via the Valproate audit 2022/23 tab on MYS. This is a mandatory contractual requirement.

If contractors have conducted the audit but did not identify any patients to participate in the audit, they are still required to declare that no patients were identified as being suitable. This should be done by ticking the ‘No eligible patients’ box within the Valproate Audit 2022/23 tab on MYS and submitting this information by 31st March 2023. This will create a record which will act as evidence that the audit has been completed even though no patient data has been added to MYS.

The NHSBSA has updated their spreadsheet which lists whether contractors have submitted their audit data on the MYS portal (this is correct up until 21st March 2023). If contractors are showing as having submitted their data (highlighted in green on the spreadsheet) no further action is required.
