NHS Mail

Quality Payments

Having an NHSmail account is 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).

 

Contractors who do not have an NHS mail account, but would like one, can apply for one by following the process explained in http://psnc.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/PSNC-Briefing-058.17-How-to-complete-the-NHSmail-registration-process.pdf.

 

Community pharmacy teams are encouraged to routinely use their NHSmail pharmacy email account.

Individual accounts that are not used will become ‘inactive’ and are disabled after 90 days. Disabled accounts are permanently deleted after a further 90 days and cannot be re-activated.  If the account is still needed it would mean that a different user name would need to be created and all data previously held in the old NHSmail account would be lost. Please note that a shared account does not become inactive and therefore is neither disabled or deleted. 

To avoid an individual account becoming inactive the password must be changed at least every 90 days.  

Further information and FAQs about NHSmail can be found at http://psnc.org.uk/contract-it/pharmacy-it/nhs-mail/ and the NHS portal at  https://portal.nhs.net/help/faq.
