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.

RPS advanced credentialing support programme

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and CPPE are working together to support pharmacists to be recognised as practising at an advanced level of practice in line with RPS Core Advanced curriculum and the HEE ACP framework. Those who successfully complete the RPS e-portfolio assessment will be credentialed as an advanced pharmacist.  This credentialling will mean you will have recognised equivalence in level of advanced practice to those who have completed the HEE supported e-portfolio route or a HEE accredited ACP course.

Register you interest by booking on this event. You will get a workshop style confirmation, but there is no event at the times detailed.
