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.

European Antibiotic Awareness Day Campaign 2017 learning campaign

EAAD campaign 2017 from CPPE on Vimeo.

This year we are working with Public Health England (PHE) who are looking to the pharmacy profession to raise public awareness of the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and encourage the public to choose an Antibiotic Guardian (AG) pledge.


CPPE is working together with RPS during their antimicrobial resistance campaign. Visit the RPS website for more information at www.rpharms.com/making-a-difference/projects-and-campaigns/antimicrobial-resistance-stewardship

We are running the campaign in collaboration with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee, Pharmacy Voice, Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK and British Pharmaceutical Students’ Association.
