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.

Clinical factsheets

We have a portfolio of factsheets that you may find useful. Each factsheet should refresh your knowledge of that particular condition and provide you with links to appropriate further resources. As with all of our materials, these factsheets have been reviewed by topic experts.

You may wish to download some of the factsheets for your reference, or you can access the directory as and when you need to. You will find a review date on each factsheet, so if you do download them you will be able to ensure that you are using the most up-to-date version.
