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.

COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination learning and resource hub

CPPE has updated our COVID-19 learning and resource hub to now include vital information about the COVID-19 vaccination and its rollout. In the newly named COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination learning and resource hub, you can find additional up-to-date information and support for pharmacy professionals dealing with the COVID-19 vaccination programme. 

In the COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination learning and resource hub, you can access the new COVID-19 vaccination – support for you section. This section directs learners to a multitude of resources that aim to support pharmacy professionals delivering the COVID-19 vaccination.

One of these is the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) COVID-19 Vaccination e-learning programme. The Support for you section offers guidance on how to access this e-learning and outlines the course material and the relevant assessments.

There are also links to further resources from other professional bodies, eg, Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS), General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) and Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC) that we think will be the most valuable to learners. This section will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.

The COVID-19 and COVID-19 vaccination learning and resource hub also includes sections such as Returning to pharmacy practice (community and hospital), Upskilling to look after those who are acutely unwell, Working in a Nightingale hospital, and Seeking support and resilience. We hope these resources prove valuable to those working in the pharmacy profession during the COVID-19 pandemic, and those involved with the vaccination programme.
