WESSEX SIGNPOSTING

We have analysed the results of the  CPAF Screening questionnaire for 2016/17 and identified areas where it appears that some additional guidance may be helpful for community pharmacies. The first of these areas is signposting and particularly making records of this activity where appropriate.

Please find attached a one page guidance document that can be used as a poster, saved to your computer desktop or used just as a general reminder.

The links will provide access to sources of  information and help you meet the requirements of this essential  service. We have included a few links to sites that provide a wide range of different information. Of course there are many more and we have left space for you to add local information that you find useful.

 

Please remember to record your signposting interventions where appropriate in a format that allows for follow up care and audit of the service.

NHS England – South (Wessex) website page for community pharmacies

We now have a dedicated page on the NHS England website for community pharmacy information for the Wessex area. The link is here: https://www.england.nhs.uk/south/info-professional/pharm-info/wessex-pharm/

The website page will include contact information, resources and links – have a look and bookmark it!

NHS Advanced Services

MURs - information, guidance, processes & resources available

Medicines Use Review (MUR) is a service which can be offered to patients by community pharmacists under the Advanced Services of the pharmacy contract; it is also referred to as a Prescription Interventon Service dependent on whether it is a planned or opportunistic consultation and it's outcomes. The aim of the Service is to achieve a concordant approach to medicine taking by:

  • identifying, discussing and resolving poor or ineffective use of their medicines;
  • identifying side effects and drug interactions that may affect patient compliance;
  • improving the clinical effectiveness and cost effectiveness of prescribed medicines and reducing medicine wastage. 

The review is one of medicine use, not a clinical review.

A self-accreditation form can be accessed here (PREM1).   The form must be completed and sent to the Wessex Area Team  together with copies of MUR Certificates for each pharmacist (including locums) intending to deliver the service. The Area Team  will be monitoring compliance with these criteria during a monitoring visit. If pharmacists wish to conduct MURs off premises, they must first fulfill all accreditation criteria and apply to their Area Team for permission using form PREM2.    Guidelines on MURs are available from the PSNC website.

Pharmacist Accreditation

Accreditation can be obtained through a number of sources:

  • The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE); additional guidance is available by clicking here; (for Hints & Tips on Successful Accreditation )
  • Medway School of Pharmacy Skills for MURs programme.

MUR Top Tips are available for many conditions on the Chemist and Druggist website

A new MUR Training resource is available online at: www.murtraining.co.uk/

The NPA and GSK have worked together on two CD-ROM training initiatives: Communications Skills 2 and MURs - making them happen. Both of these are available free of charge to NPA members by contacting the GSK Customer Service Centre on 0800 221441.

Consultation Area

The three criteria for accreditation are:

  • The consultation area is a designated area where both the patient and pharmacist can sit down together;
  • The patient and pharmacist are able to talk at normal speaking volumes without being overheard by other visitors to the pharmacy, or by pharmacy staff undertaking their normal duties;
  • The consultation area is clearly designated as an area for confidential consultations, distinct from the general public areas of the pharmacy.

Whilst not a requirement for MURs, it is recommended that contractors invest in a consultation area which will meet the potential criteria to deliver future commissioned Enhanced Services including an appropriate sink, a networked computer for pharmacist access to patients records during consultations, a panic alarm button and create an inviting, but professional environment. An NPA document on Making Best Use of Consultation Areas is now available.

NUMSAS

LPC update

One of the LPC’s strategic aims is to enable greater transparency with respect to the LPC's decision making process with respect to service commissioning.  The LPC Services sub-committee now review all newly proposed or recommissioned services as part of their remit. The format of the review is in a standard format ‘Service Checklist’ which RAG (red, amber & green) rates the service against pre-agreed criteria. 

Each criteria question is RAG graded with comments made where appropriate and then once completed the overall service proposal is RAG rated with respect to the LPC’s recommendation for participation and support of the service as follows:

                              Green    - fully recommend and suggest participation by all pharmacies.

                              Amber   - recommend but aware that some reservations, pharmacies will need to assess willingness to participate individually.

                              Red        - not recommended and suggest pharmacies do not participate.

The overall RAG rating is shown on the front page together with any recommendations that the LPC would like to be considered for revision prior to commissioning. Each completed 'Service Checklist’ is then sent to the commissioner to consider specification amendments to further enhance the service for our contractors. There is a section below this, where we ask the commissioner to reply and respond to any points raised.

Following a defined period of time, the checklist (or commissioner amended checklist) is published on our website and emailed to all local pharmacy contractors so that they are clear on the LPC recommendation for that service.

So, what is the position with NUMSAS?

The current position is that considering there is still so much important information yet to be finalised, contractors are recommended to delay their sign-up to the new NUMSAS service for the time being. Wessex will not be going live until at least March 2017 and hence there is no gain in rushing to sign up for the service immediately. The LPC is negotiating a position with both the current local service commissioners; NHS England South (Wessex) & IOW CCG with regard to contracting opportunities going forward, and hence our view is that contractors should wait for more information to be available before they make a more informed choice on whether to sign-up.

With only partial information at present the Service sub-committee have currently rated NUMSAS service as red.

It is clear that the NUMSAS service is inferior to the current locally commissioned PURM schemes in both Wessex (without Isle of Wight) and the Isle of Wight. The Wessex PURM service was previously RAG rated as green and is attached.

(The Isle of Wight service was previously not RAG rated, however its terms and conditions are most favourable and it too would undoubtedly be green).

Also attached is the current NUMSAS RAG rating agreed by the sub-committee.

Quality Payments

 

 

Quality Payment scheme

LPC update

As you are well aware the imposed two year Government funding package changes took effect from December 1st which removes £113m from Community Pharmacy representing a 4% reduction in revenue for this financial year and a further £95m decrease the year after; representing another 7.5%. This loss of revenue will affect all our contractors to varying amounts depending upon individual prescription items dispensed and geographical locality in respect to other pharmacies. One thing that will be consistent however is the need to review current service provision and to explore ways in which to maximise this to offset some of the direct remuneration loss from prescription payments.

A simple way to summarise the funding changes is shown pictorially below as a squeeze from both sides on Community Pharmacy.

 

The NHS Quality Payment scheme details are becoming more clear as each week goes by since their initial announcement back in October 2016.  The LPC would like to ensure that all contractors are aware of the new scheme and how best to progress achieving the maximum remuneration in the most efficient capacity.

The LPC committee formed a HLP & Quality Payments Task & Finish group to work through the detail and consider what further actions the LPC needed to take on behalf of contractors. 

There is already a lot of detail published regarding the new Quality Payment scheme. The group recommendation is that all contractors use the PSNC website as their starting point for their main reference source of information. Other sources can be used, however the information quoted soon becomes repetitious and the group felt the PSNC site was the most comprehensive. The various sections on the PSNC site are regularly updated and provide links to other information and handy tools that you can use to keep records required to qualify for payment throughout the year. Click here for a direct link to the PSNC Quality Payments webpage.

Information includes:

  • DoH service package - the scheme itself
  • Gateway criteria - the must do’s otherwise no payment at all from participation
  • Quality payment criteria - the can do’s, the more you do the more you earn
  • Review points - twice a year 
  • PharmOutcomes support - being developed, watch this space as it will contain all the links you’ll need plus keep your records and do your GP notifications.
  • CPPE support - good for directing you to learning resources (also see attachment above)
  • Payment information - how it works and what to do
  • FAQs - useful as covers questions asked so far by others
  • Webinar & slide deck - really useful to listen to and gives context to all the content above.

Additionally the group would like to qualify the following points that may not be clear in the scheme details as follows:

  • SCR local support events are currently being planned jointly by H&IOW LPC, Dorset LPC, Wessex LPN, Wessex RPS & CPPE. Details of the ‘Making the most of SCR’ meetings will be confirmed shortly, so please be sure to book onto one of these to help improve your knowledge, competence and confidence in regularly using this function. Look out for forthcoming dates and venues.
  • A Quality Payments page will be created on the LPC website that contains links to all relevant information and updates together with LPC updates on any local activity planned.
  • HLP information is available already on the LPC website (click here). The HLP guide for participating Hampshire pharmacies can be downloaded directly, although a printed copy can be posted to you if you prefer by contacting jo.addison@hampshirelpc.org.uk
  • Safeguarding criteria apply to all pharmacy professionals, so it is important to ensure that all Registered Accredited Checking Technicians are included in your planning as well as pharmacists.
  • Additionally your local Wessex Academy leads will ensure that topics are included throughout 2017 to support any concerns raised regarding Quality Payments. Planning is currently going on to cover Dementia Friends training at each groups meeting prior to April.
  • ‘PharmacyComplete' have shared a one page training record spreadsheet (attached along with their summary guide) which you may find useful to document all your training together in one place. PSNC also have individual templates on their website and PharmOutcomes are developing a virtual solution if you prefer this (not available yet)

Smoking Referral service

Southampton Healthy Living (SHL) launches its Community Pharmacy Smoking Referral service on 1st October 2017. The service enables identified community pharmacies within Southampton, to positively refer suitable clients intent on quitting smoking, to the new Healthy Living hubs across the city.

Successful referrals will trigger varying remuneration rates to the pharmacy dependent on client eligibility and quit rate performance. The service aims are to improve access to the NHS Stop Smoking Service for clients, focussing particularly on those with long term conditions, pregnant smokers & their partners and other service users by encouraging positive referrals from the large footfall of people who routinely visit community pharmacies. By working collaboratively with community pharmacies it is hoped to reduce the incidence of smoking related illnesses across the city (see attached comms) Attached is the SLA for the initial 15 pilot sites selected on on the basis of geographic, demographic and previous smoking cessation service levels generated at each location. Selected sites have received a direct invitation to provide the service from SHL via the LPC and are asked to return necessary signed agreements ASAP.

EHC Service and Chlamydia Screening

If you are delivering  the Hampshire Chlamydia Kits and Condoms Service, to re-order kits please contact:  solentsexualhealthpromotion@solent.nhs.uk.

See www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk  fo clinic information.

The on-line EHC training and accreditation for the delivery of the EHC Service commissioned from pharmacies in Hampshire is now live. Pharmacists wishing to be accredited to provide HCC EHC service commissioned will need to complete the on-line training as well the relevant CPPE module.

Step 1 Register

Training is accessed from the website www.training.hampshire.nhs.uk .  Pharmacists register using their GPhC number to create a username and password. Registration generates an e-mail with an activation link which must be followed to complete the registration process (You may need to check your spam filter for the email).

Step 2 Complete the training

The EHC accreditation training is selected from the menu at the top. There are four training modules and an accreditation assessment to be completed. The course should take no more than 2 hours and does not need to be completed in one sitting. (It may take a couple of minutes for some of the video to download)

Step 3 Pass the assessment

On passing the assessment the candidate will be able to print off a certificate.  The commissioners will be informed of the outcome of the assessment so that accredited pharmacists can be linked to Hampshire pharmacies delivering the EHC service.

Further intructions can be found here.

Further information about opening hours is available from NHS Choices  where opening hours are displayed for each pharmacy. Click on 'see exact hours' for full bank holiday opening information

Please note, prior to April 1st 2013 each PCT produced a poster of bank holiday opening hours for pharmacies to print and display.

It will be up to each pharmacy to extract the appropriate information from the spread sheet to use in their pharmacies.

Disclosure and Barring Service checks

The Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) and the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA) have merged to become the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). CRB checks are now called DBS checks.

A DBS check may be needed for:

An employer can ask for a DBS check for certain roles.

DBS eligibility guidance lists most roles that are eligible for a check. However, the guidance isn’t comprehensive so contact DBS if unsure.

Applicants (job candidates) can’t do a criminal records check on themselves, but they can request a ‘basic disclosure’.

How to get a DBS check

For more information visist the DBS website: https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-barring-service-check/overview

UPDATE - June 2015

Be advised that your local office of Primary Care Support (PCS) Services will no longer be able to complete and submit the Disclosure and Barring Service Checks forms on behalf of applicants to the Performer List.

Applicants seeking to join the Performer List will be required to complete and submit these forms themselves and can use any one of the umbrella bodies recommended by the Home Office for supporting applicants with their DBS application. These umbrella bodies can be found at https://dbs-ub-directory.homeoffice.gov.uk/

PCS Services is subject to a national procurement exercise and an external provider will be announced later this year who will deliver its services under a new national contract. The work of submitting DBS forms on behalf of Performer List applicants, which some PCS Services offices have undertaken, is not included in the terms of the contract that is now being procured.

Your local office of PCS Services will therefore discontinue providing this service to Provider List applicants from 1 June 2015. Any applications received at this office on or before 31 May will not be affected by change. After this date, either the applicant or the practice will be required to return their DBS forms themselves. Once the relevant DBS certificate is received by PCS Services, along with the other paperwork, the application to be included on the Performer List will be processed as usual.
