Pharmacy Advice Audit 2022: Starts next week


Community pharmacy contractors and their teams are reminded that PSNC’s third Pharmacy Advice Audit is due to be held in w/c 31st January 2022.

As announced last week, the audit will help demonstrate how pharmacies are supporting their communities every day and assist PSNC in gathering critical evidence for use in our funding discussions with HM Government and the NHS.

The huge number of pharmacies taking part in last year’s Advice Audit provided compelling evidence for use in our negotiations, and the results were also critical in helping to persuade MPs to support our case for COVID-19 costs. We would therefore be very grateful to anyone able to take part in this year’s audit.

As in previous years, the audit has been designed to be as straightforward as possible, and it can be carried out in just a single day in the week commencing Monday 31st January. This year, however, contractors will notice some minor changes to the audit template to help us begin to better understand the sorts of consultations that pharmacies are now giving.

We hope to receive data from as many pharmacy teams as possible to build a strong evidence base, and would be hugely grateful to anyone who does take part in this year’s audit.
