Like our colleagues across England we are delighted to see the announcement of the Pharmacy First scheme which we know will help people access high quality care from their local community pharmacies. We are also aware that for many pharmacy teams, one result will be that you are now dedicating yourself to getting ready to offer the service and doing essential CPD on the seven conditions concerned. December is also traditionally a busier month than usual in pharmacy practice and as a result, we have decided to pause our cancellation policy until the start of January 2024. This means that if you find that you are not able to attend one of our events and need to cancel, then you will not be asked to pay a contribution towards the cost of the event. We hope that this will take away one potential area of pressure that you may be feeling. We hope that you will still choose to attend our events, engage in the learning and progress your personal development. However, if you need the time to focus on other aspects of your development, please use this planned workshop time to do so. Thank you for making a difference to the care for communities across the country.
Server maintenance will mean our website will be unavailable from around 8:35pm on the evenings of Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th December 2023 for up to 30 minutes. We apologise for the short notice. Please refrain from starting any assessment attempts near to this time. If you have a particular issue, please contact our customer service team by email.
