Alphega members earn more QPS points

Alphega Pharmacy UK members on its highest membership scheme have come out on top in the 2017/18 Quality Payment Scheme (QPS), according to the company, claiming on average 8.4 points more than non-AlphegaPharmacy independent pharmacies. This equates to a minimum of £537.60 in addition to the average payments received to a pharmacy.

All other Alphega Pharmacy UK members on average claimed 4.3 points more than non-Alphega Pharmacy independent pharmacies, the company maintains. This equates to a minimum of £275.20 in addition to the average payments received to a pharmacy.

The QPS became part of the community pharmacy contract in England in December 2016, and through the scheme, each community pharmacy can earn a minimum of £6,400 for meeting quality payments’ criteria.

The company says its QPS Action Plan was a major factor to members' success, highlighting its "simple language and consistent user-friendly layout", which made the complicated requirements for completing QPS, simpler and easier. 

Alphega Pharmacy UK member, Subhash Patel, Central Pharmacy, Esher said: "The support Alphega Pharmacy UK provided throughout the duration of the Quality Payments Scheme was invaluable in helping me reach the maximum 100 points. The Action Plan on the Alphega tablet gave clear and concise instructions on how to achieve each of the criteria and the evening roadshow made becoming a Healthy Living Pharmacy a far less ominous task."

Bahader Mann, regional director, Alphega Pharmacy Europe added: “We are very proud of the way we supported our members, particularly those on our highest membership scheme, who received more visits from their business mentors.”
