All pharmacy contractors offer essential services as part of the NHS Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework. We offer a range of learning resources to equip you and your pharmacy team to meet your contract requirements. Dispensing medicines, promoting healthy lifestyles, clinical governance and support for self-care are just some of the core services within the contract. Our programmes and assessments range from support with responding to minor ailments to dealing with prescriptions for specials. They also look at the reality of delivering services in practice and how you can integrate services effectively into your working day.
You can access learning programmes and assessments below to support you to deliver essential services.

We recognise that people have different learning needs. Some of our programmes contain core learning while others deliver more complex learning that is only required to support certain roles. We have three categories of learning (1,2,3) and have allocated each programme to an appropriate category.
Core learning. Builds on limited knowledge. Some background reading may be required.
Application of knowledge. Assumes prior learning.
Supporting specialisms. We may not be the provider and will signpost you to other learning providers.
Learning programmes from other providers which complement your learning.
