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.

CPPE Leading for change programme for hospital pharmacy professionals

We are delighted to announce a new pilot leadership and management programme for hospital pharmacy professionals.

If you are a mid-to-senior grade hospital pharmacist or technician working in an acute or mental health trust, CPPE's Leading for change - leadership and management for hospital pharmacy professionals may be for you.

Leading for change is for hospital pharmacy professionals who have also completed their foundation level practice and are working at, or towards, advanced level practice.

The fully funded programme takes a blended learning approach, delivered over six months, and consists of four online modules supported by face-to-face workshops and workplace-based learning experiences.

It will equip you with the knowledge and skills to take on challenges effectively and lead in medicines optimisation to deliver better patient outcomes.

The first wave of the programme is a pilot and is only available to professionals providing NHS services in the South Central NHS locality.

The deadline for applications for the pilot is 6 October 2017.

To find out more, how to apply, and which areas can apply for the pilot, visit our dedicated webpage at: www.cppe.ac.uk/therapeutics/hospital-leadership

The programme will roll out nationally in February 2018 and we will be accepting applications from those outside the pilot region from October onwards.
