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.

Our annual report is out now

Our 2016/2017 annual report and highlights infographic are now available to view from our website.

Inside the report you can see our governance structure, how we have performed against our strategic targets, how our tutor team has been working locally and what our plans are for 2017/2018.

In 2016/2017 we celebrated our 25th anniversary, and CPPE director, Professor Christopher Cutts, frames his personal review of the year around our values by focusing on the themes of encouragement, communication and achievement.

Some highlights from 2016/2017 include:

  • delivering 660 workshops, 181 collaborative events and 222 collaborative activities
  • developing 35 new learning programmes
  • sending out copies of its distance learning programmes on urgent care and learning disabilities to every pharmacy professional in England.

Sadly, the pharmacy profession lost one of its greats in June 2017, and so we also pay tribute to Professor Peter Noyce, who helped shape and lead CPPE over many years and supported every CPPE director to date.


"This will be my last annual report as CPPE director, as I move to Health Education England to be pharmacy dean for HEE (North) in August. It’s been a huge privilege to lead CPPE for almost 12 years and I’d like to thank everyone involved in CPPE, especially our talented CPPE team, for such an amazing opportunity to lead such a productive, innovative and creative organisation. I will miss it so much."

Professor Christopher Cutts, Director, CPPE
