Quality Care 2020 Assessments
Pharmacy ABC is scheduled for its re accreditation assessment on Thursday 4 June 2020, and is preparing evidence for its on-site assessment. The owner Dee Spencer, went through the accreditation process two years prior, and is able to review her existing policies, procedures and records under the same QCPP requirements.
Pharmacy 123 is scheduled for its re accreditation assessment on Monday 20 July 2020, and is preparing evidence for its on-site assessment. Because the pharmacy is being assessed after 1 July 2020, they will be assessed under Quality Care 2020 and the enhanced Requirements. Pharmacy owner Phil Script visits the Quality Care 2020 section of the QCPP's website to find out what the enhanced Requirements are, and then prepares evidence of policies, procedures and records under the new program.

Feedback and input from community pharmacy is important to us.
QCPP has established the pharmacy-led QCPP Reform Working Group to provide ongoing input into the development of Quality Care 2020.
Membership of the group includes representatives from a variety of pharmacies, including both Guild and non-Guild members, independent and banner group pharmacies, as well as pharmacies that participated in the pilot review. It includes subject matter experts with extensive understanding of small business pharmacies.
The Working Group was initiated in 2018 is continuing to meet regularly during the development and roll out of Quality Care 2020.
Furthermore, the QCPP Impartiality Committee will also meet regularly during the development of Quality Care 2020 to ensure open and transparent decision making occurs.
