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 Transgender healthcare: consulting with dignity and respect e-learning programme

We are delighted to announce the launch of our new e-learning programme – Transgender healthcare: consulting with dignity and respect.

Statistics show that transgender people are not only more likely to get sick, but less likely to seek treatment when they do. We know that many transgender people worry about accessing healthcare services for fear of experiencing discrimination on the grounds of their gender identity or transgender status, and community pharmacy is in an ideal position to provide support.

Our new programme will help you consider how you can make your pharmacy more inclusive and improve the patient experience for the transgender and non-binary community.

The e-learning programme utilises video interview learning to address these issues in relation to community pharmacy practice and discusses some of the measures pharmacy professionals can take, such as use of inclusive language, to make sure they provide a supportive, person-centred service for people in the transgender and non-binary community.

The Transgender healthcare: consulting with dignity and respect programme covers:

  • Issues faced by the transgender and non-binary community within healthcare.
  • Measures to make your pharmacy more inclusive, and a safe space for transgender and non-binary people accessing your services.
  • Techniques in demonstrating a team approach to supporting transgender and non-binary people experiencing health and social care issues.

The programme is open to pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pre-registration trainees and CPPE registrants.
