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.

Return to prescribing

The CPPE Return to prescribing course is a three-day programme delivered over a three month period. It is open to any pharmacist prescriber registered in England who needs to regain the competence and confidence to prescribe.

Over the three days you will reflect on your current skills and identify actions, resources and opportunities to address gaps in the knowledge, skills and behaviours required for effective prescribing. This will be achieved through a mix of individual learning, group activities and discussions, and sharing of best practice.

Our face-to-face course is postponed at present. As an alternative to these events we are offering a set of three webinars in the interim. They can be found on our events pages, by searching for 'return to prescribing' or clicking on the booking link on the right.
