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.

Learning disabilities learning campaign

CPPE has designed this campaign for pharmacy professionals to raise awareness of learning disabilities and enable you to reflect on how you can best support people with a learning disability and their carers. You will also explore how you can support the national pledge of ‘stopping over-medication in people with learning disabilities, autism or both’ (STOMP).

Everyone has a role to play in optimising the medicines for people with a learning disability and supporting their carers or family.
