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.

New COVID-19 gateway page launched

In order to make learning and upskilling on COVID-19 as easy and accessible as possible for pharmacy professionals, we have created a brand new COVID-19 gateway page.

This page includes a variety of key resources from CPPE and external organisations, so that all of the most up-to-date learning is in one place.

The gateway page includes a short introductory video from CPPE director, Matthew Shaw, as well as core and foundation learning on current guidance from Public Health England and the NHS. There is also advanced learning on COVID-19 medicines recommendations and NICE guidelines and evidence summaries.

We have also included a collection of tools and further reading to support your learning needs on various related topics such as remote consulting, repeat dispensing and standard operating procedures.
