Quality Payments: NEW Directory of Services profile updater now available for the November Quality Payment Review Point

October 9, 2017

The new Directory of Services (DoS) profile updater which community pharmacy contractors will need to use to meet the DoS quality criterion of the Quality Payments Scheme is now live.

NHS England has been working with NHS Digital since the April 2017 review date to develop an improved DoS profile updater (previously known as the DoS Checker tool) for the November review point.

For the November declaration, contractors will be required to edit or confirm the information about their pharmacy is correct on the DoS profile updater by 11:59pm on 24th November 2017 to meet the quality criterion. This process is the same for ‘bricks and mortar’ pharmacies and distance selling pharmacies.

Some pharmacies/multiples will be managing the Quality Payment Scheme centrally, please do liaise with company managers/head office to find out the company procedure for your pharmacy.

Guidance and a video and a video  on how to edit or confirm the information about a pharmacy is correct is available on the DoS profile updater website. Please read the guidance and/or watch the video to ensure they fully understand how to meet the quality criterion.

Once the details on the DoS profile updater have been submitted, the contractor will receive an email to confirm this. This email should be retained as evidence of meeting the DoS quality criterion.

The email should be received instantaneously after submitting the information on the DoS profile updater; however, please allow up to two hours for the email to be delivered. If the email is not received after this time period, please check your junk/clutter folders to ensure the email has not been inappropriately filed in this folder. If this is not the case, please email: Exeter.helpdesk@nhs.net for further advice.

For technical difficulties accessing the DoS Profile Updater please email the NHS Digital help desk at exeter.helpdesk@nhs.net or call them on
0300 303 4034.
