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.

Week 2 of CPPE's EAAD campaign

It's the second week of our learning campaign leading up to European Antibiotic Awareness Day (EAAD). We hope you have signed up for the campaign on our EAAD webpage, and completed the challenge for Week 1.

This week the challenge is to become an Antibiotic Guardian, and encourage others to do the same. Antibiotic Guardian is a campaign led by Public Health England to raise awareness of antimicrobial resistance, inviting healthcare professionals and the public to cut the unnecessary use of antibiotics.

We challenge you to become an Antibiotic Guardian, and make a pledge on the Antibiotic Guardian website about how you'll make better use of antibiotics. 

Then, get five members of the public (family, friends, work colleagues, customers and patients) to choose their Antibiotic Guardian pledge. Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today, and it can really make a difference to inform the public and encourage them to change the way they think about antibiotics.

Make sure that when they get to the question 'How did you hear about Antibiotic Guardian?' they choose the pharmacy option.

There have now been over 50,000 pledges made, and pharmacy is leading in this campaign to keep antibiotics working, so sign up now and make your pledge!

Share your pledges and success stories with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Tag @cppeengland in your posts and use the hashtag #CPPEEAAD17.
