Are you a pharmacist or pharmacy technician who has been out of practice for some time and planning to work in community pharmacy delivering NHS pharmacy services?
We have structured courses that can facilitate your return to community pharmacy practice and, if required, your return to the GPhC register.
Our Return to practice course is a four-day residential course held over two blocks of two days. The programme covers key elements of community pharmacy practice including the contractual framework, patient-centred consultations, medicines optimisation and public health services. We provide pre-workshop materials to help you to get the most out of the residential course, and comprehensive workbooks and materials to further support you in developing your knowledge, skills and competence.
The course takes an active and engaging approach in a safe and supportive environment with your peers.
If you need to return to the GPhC register and are planning to work for the NHS, the return to the register course is for you. This is run as a one-day face-to-face course twice a year or as an online self-directed course with tutor support. We provide you with guidance and materials to facilitate the preparation of your portfolio.

We’ve developed an online learning environment to promote and support work-based teaching and learning opportunities for the whole community pharmacy team. The learning platform is easily accessed at:theLearningpharmacy.com and has been developed for everyone in the community pharmacy. When you visit the site you can choose from a selection of topics or ‘pharmacy floors’ where you can select and work through practice-based, bite-sized learning challenges. Each challenge provides 10-15 minutes of quality learning and they’ve been developed to be fun and interactive.
This programme will help to update your knowledge and skills on the common clinical conditions and minor ailments that present themselves in community pharmacy. It contains practical tips and advice on how to identify, recognise and manage minor ailments.
