NHS priorities

Whether it’s to prepare for the next Pharmacy Quality 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.

Changes to CPPE online workshop timings in effect from 1 October

We're changing the way we manage our online workshops.

From 1 October, we will open Zoom rooms for our online workshops 10 minutes before the advertised start time of the workshop (eg, at 6:50pm for a 7:00pm workshop) to give you the opportunity to familiarise yourself with Zoom and discuss any issues with the tutors before the workshop begins.

Although many people are very comfortable using Zoom to attend CPPE workshops, we recognise that there will continue to be people who need a little time and help to get started. If you feel you could use the additional time to get settled in, we encourage you to log on early in order to overcome any potential issues.

All workshops will commence the learning portion of the session at the advertised start time. We ask that all attendees are present and ready to begin the workshop at the time advertised.
