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.

Week 1 of our New Year, New Contract campaign

Welcome to the first week of our New Year, New Contract campaign.

All of the learning on the campaign webpage is available to access however, this week’s focus will be on how pharmacy professionals can be part of delivering the NHS Long Term Plan and the context of the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework (CPCF) in the wider NHS.

The learning on the NHS Long Term Plan includes a video of Alistair Buxton, Director of NHS Services for the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee who outlines the key changes to the CPCF, as well as how pharmacy professionals from all sectors can work together to implement these changes and improve patient care.

There’s also a short quiz on the CPCF that you can use to test yourself and identify any gaps in your knowledge. We’ve also added some useful links to further reading and resources to supplement your learning.

Share your experiences and let us know when you have completed the learning on TwitterFacebook and Instagram. Tag @cppeengland on Twitter and use the hashtag #CPPENYNC.
