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.

Leadership - Building on your Mary Seacole award Workshops 1 and 2

Have you successfully completed the Mary Seacole programme for community pharmacy and are looking to continue to develop your leadership skills?

We have developed a series of two short workshops to support you in taking your leadership skills to the next level.

The workshops will give you the opportunity to explore how you have grown as a leader and how your new-found knowledge and skills have helped you to improve your practice.

There will also be plenty of opportunities for personal reflection, experimentation and feedback, which will enable you to understand yourself even better.

After completing the workshop, you will be able to apply the Self-Directed Learning Model to help you to continue your leadership journey, use the GROWS model to coach a team member or peer and reflect on your leadership success to identify how you have applied leadership skills gained on the Mary Seacole programme.

You will also be able to undertake a peer discussion, which you can use towards your revalidation.
