However, the UK PSA undergoes a strict standard setting process to form a UK standard, because it is a mandatory certification for UK foundation doctors. The content of the Prescribing Skills Assessment, on the other hand, is managed by BPS Assessment.This means that we can offer both formative and summative assessments, alongside practice papers and data-rich feedback for learners.
