NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Quality Payments 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.

Foundation pharmacist programme 2020/21

The Health Education England (HEE) Interim Foundation Pharmacist Programme (IFPP) supported the 2019/20 cohort of pre-registration pharmacists whose training and registration was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic to make the transition from pre-registration trainee, through provisional registration, to becoming a fully registered foundation pharmacist and beyond. The Foundation pharmacist programme 2020/21 delivered by CPPE is part of the HEE IFPP.

This programme has now closed.
