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.

New Year, New Contract campaign

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.


Once you have completed the six tasks above, refresh the page to enable the pledge.

Allow CPPE to use this pledge in promotional material and on social media.
