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.


CPPE is committed to ensuring that this website, along with CPPE programmes and services, is inclusive to all our customers. We have developed a short document explaining how we consider accessibility for our customers when developing our learning materials: Support from CPPE for people with disabilities.

In our learning programmes, we use the terms 'men' and 'women'. We recognise that some people identify with a gender different from that assigned at birth (trans people), while others identify as neither man nor woman (non-binary, genderfluid).

If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the inclusivity of this site, our programmes or our events, please contact us.
