Welcome to the new CPPE campaign, New Year, New Contract that aims to raise awareness of the new Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework and the opportunities it brings for pharmacy professionals in all sectors of NHS practice..
Take part in the campaign to learn about key elements of the contract and use the links to CPPE learning and other resources to support you in developing your practice.
Unlike previous CPPE campaigns, we’ve released all the information and learning for the campaign on this page at the same time. We recommend that you start by clicking on the NHS Long Term Plan icon below, watch the video and work through the short quiz to help you identify any gaps in your knowledge.
When you’ve looked at the information on all the elements of the contract shown, reflect on your learning and your current practice and share with us the first step you are going to take to make the best use of the opportunities offered by the new community pharmacy contract. You will then receive a virtual badge to add to your collection on your CPPE learning record.
