The NHSBSA General Pharmaceutical Services (GPhS) - England Official Statistics release was assessed from April 2021 to July 2021 by the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) to determine if it fully complied with the Code of Practice for Statistics and met the highest standards of trustworthiness, quality, and public value.
OSR identified 4 requirements for us to address to make sure the high standards associated with National Statistics designation are met. An action plan has been created that outlines how the NHSBSA Official Statistics Team proposes to achieve the requirements set out in the OSR assessment by October 2021. This will allow OSR to recommend to the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA) that National Statistics status for these statistics is confirmed.
