NHS Mail

Quality Payments

Having an NHSmail account is now a gateway criterion for the Quality Payments scheme  and it is also necessary for any pharmacy that wishes to provide the NHS Urgent Medicine Supply Advanced Service (NUMSAS)

To be eligible to collect the points necessary to claim the Quality Payment, community pharmacy contractors must meet four gateway criteria, one of which is:

‘On the day of the review, Pharmacy staff at the pharmacy must be able to send and receive NHS mail (Note: For the April 2017 Review, evidence of application for an NHS Mail account by 1 February 2017 will be acceptable).’

This criterion must be complied with before any payment can be achieved.
