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.

First episode of CPPE's new podcast is now live

We are excited to announce that we have launched a new podcast featuring pharmacy professionals working in national healthcare organisations.

The podcast is hosted by Cindy Boyd, clinical fellow at CPPE for 2019-2020.

Each episode will have a guest pharmacy professional who will discuss their role and the organisation(s) that they work for. The aim of the podcast is to allow listeners to understand the role of the guest speaker and the function of their organisation. It will also give insight into pharmacy and medicines optimisation work streams within the organisation discussed.

The podcast will signpost to relevant learning materials that listeners may wish to access to further their learning or understanding for continued professional development.

The first episode is now live and features Matthew Shaw, Cindy Boyd and Kate Blackhurst. Throughout the episode, Matthew shares his career journey and insight into his role as director of CPPE.
