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.

How can you support Stoptober?

What are you doing to support Stoptober,the national campaign to reduce smoking in England?  
This month people are being encouraged to stop smoking for 28 days. People who stop smoking for 28 days are five times more likely to stay smokefree. By visiting the Stoptober website your customers can sign up to receive free motivational resources.
How can you get involved? You can help your customers by providing additional support before, during and after this campaign. We have a range of learning programmes that can support you in improving your stop smoking service, from the National Centre for Smoking Cessation and Training (NCSCT) e-learning programmes through to assessments to complete your learning. You can visit the web resources and links page for our Stop smoking workshop or click on one of the programme links below.

CPPE learning programmes to support you

*These programmes are hosted by NCSCT. The NCSCT was established by the Department of Health to help local smoking cessation services in England deliver high-quality behavioural support. You can access two of their e-learning programmes and their assessments from our website.
