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.

Leadership school

The CPPE leadership school is a four-day programme, delivered over a 12 week period. It is open to any pharmacist or pharmacy technician with some leadership responsibility who wants to develop their skills further to drive services in their workplace and improve outcomes for patients.

Over the four days you will reflect on your current leadership skills and behaviours and develop these further through a mix of individual learning, group activities, and discussing and sharing best practice.

  • Day 1 focuses on self-awareness. Using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®), you will become more aware of your values and preferred ways of working and from that identify ways to develop your personal influence, resilience and effectiveness as a leader.
  • On Day 2 we build on this knowledge and explore leadership styles, the importance of networking, giving and receiving effective feedback and conflict resolution. 
  • On Day 3 we cover team engagement and capability, motivation, delegation and coaching.
  • On the final day we explore the challenges of leading change and improvement within the pharmacy setting as well as sharing your reflections on your learning from the CPPE leadership school and the impact it has had on your day-to-day practice.
