NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Pharmacy Quality Scheme deadline, or to increase your confidence in helping people with a learning disability, this section provides topic-specific pages that link to current NHS priorities. This section will support you in keeping your knowledge and skills up to date in order to provide high-quality pharmacy services and be service-ready.

Clinical pharmacy

Our clinical portfolio is expanding on a frequent basis, helping you to advance your knowledge and skills and deliver medicines optimisation in practice for all sectors of pharmacy. From two new focal points a year to our small group learning for hospital pharmacists – Optimise – this section focuses on clinical pharmacy, diseases and therapeutics.

Public health

The public health agenda is embedded in pharmacy, yet topics such as emergency contraception or stop smoking support are as prevalent as ever. As well as our public health workshops, use this section to access a wide range of resources to assure and maintain your competence, all underpinned by the Declaration of Competence system.

Igniting inspiration - helping you to fulfil your potential

We’re here to help you fulfil your potential and we offer a range of creative learning opportunities to do just that. From our face-to-face events to our online and distance learning programmes you’ll see that we are passionate about learning and development. We have an excellent reputation for delivering learning that goes through a robust quality-assurance process and is developed in collaboration with pharmacy and healthcare colleagues.

CPPE Cultural competence pledge:

We pledge to support pharmacy professionals to deliver culturally competent, person-centred care, when communicating with patients, the public and colleagues. We will encourage them to develop, and reflect on, their ability to sensitively ask questions if unsure of a person's needs, values and beliefs, to be open and non-judgmental, while responding with dignity and respect.

Our environmental statement

CPPE has a good track record of environmental sustainability and remains committed to continuing to reduce the carbon footprint of our day to day business, whilst raising awareness of the public health impacts of climate change.  We also promote an ethic of social responsibility engaging our whole team in actions that reduce our impact through our lifestyle choices.

Food and sustainability at CPPE events

At some of our events, CPPE provides food and refreshments for our participants so that we can make sure that their basic needs are met. From 2022 onwards, we are only providing vegetarian food options. This is part of our wider environmental sustainability strategy to aid us in reducing our carbon footprint. For our residential events, we recognise that the breakfast buffet options may still contain a range of meat options. A sustainable approach to meat eating suggests a maximum weekly intake of 98g of red meat. If there are meat-free options at breakfast, why not give them a go?

If you have any food allergies, please remember to let both CPPE and the venue know.
