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.

Focusing on you - how can we help?

This is a time of great change in pharmacy. We can offer you support and advice on your personal and professional development, respond to your individual needs and guide you through any professional difficulties you may face. Our customer services team is here to help answer your questions and our pharmacy professionals are on hand to assist you if you need advice regarding your continuing professional development (CPD). We have a variety of ways in which you can contact us: by telephone, email or Live chat.

We also know that in our increasingly busy, stressful world you may need advice of a more one-to-one nature and we have a coaching service open for pharmacy professionals. We can also signpost you to useful support networks and organisations.

We value your opinion and we would love to hear from you if you have feedback or an idea you want to share. Why not connect up and be more involved with your pharmacy colleagues?
