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.

Develop your leadership and business skills

Enhance your role and plan your personal and professional development with CPPE's leadership, management and skills-focused resources.

Demonstrating a range of business and personal skills, such as communication, leadership and project management, will help you seize opportunities when competing for services. These skills can be applied to all roles, whether you are just starting out in your career or are a more experienced pharmacy professional looking to improve your practice. These are transferable skills that can enhance your professional and personal life.
