Community Pharmacy Safety Attitudes Survey

 

Contractors will be aware that completion of the Community Pharmacy Safety Attitudes Survey is a requirement of the Quality & Safety Scheme 2019/20:

As stated in the Drug Tariff between 1 October and 31 December 2019, pharmacy employees and locums involved in the provision of NHS pharmaceutical services at the pharmacy will complete the Community Pharmacy Safety Attitudes Survey. The Safety Attitudes Survey will be provided by the NHS Wales Informatics Service (NWIS).

In the case of pharmacies where fewer than ten employees are involved in the provision of NHS pharmaceutical services, all employees (including locums) must complete the survey. In the case of pharmacies where more than ten employees are involved in the provision of NHS pharmaceutical services, no fewer than ten must complete the survey, this must include all pharmacists and pharmacy technicians (including locums) who work regularly at the pharmacy (i.e. for a total of ten or more days between 1 October 2019 and 31 March 2020).

Pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who work regularly at more than one pharmacy must complete a survey relating to each pharmacy at which they work regularly.

The survey is now available for completion and can be accessed here.

The survey has been adapted to allow multiple submissions, so there will be no paper submission option this year.
