Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee

IG Templates

The Templates can be viewed below in order of requirement number or by order of the template numbering used in the IG Workbook.

The templates have been developed by PSNC with the support of the Department of Health. NHS Employers, NHS Connecting for Health and the RPSGB also contributed to the development of many of these resources. These templates have been provided as a basis for local adaptation. It is a contractor's responsibility to ensure their compliance with professional and legal requirements. Where legal advice is required, it should be sought from a Solicitor or Counsel.

If there are any resources that you believe would support efficient completion of the requirements but which are not provided below, please email info@psnc.org.uk. Likewise if you have any feedback on how the templates can be improved, please email info@psnc.org.uk.

We always ensure this information is safely stored and kept absolutely confidential. Are you happy with our procedures or do you have any concerns? Yes/No

2a. In certain circumstances, the pharmacy may need to ask your consent to share your data with another healthcare professional to support your care. We will never pass on your health information without your express permission. Has the pharmacy ever asked for your consent like this? Yes/No

NB: The pharmacy asset register is likely to contain commercially sensitive information so there is no requirement for the details to be shared with the NHS.
