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.

Learning gateways

We have a series of learning gateways, which have been designed to make our entire portfolio of learning materials more accessible and user-friendly. You can find them under the headings NHS priorities, Clinical pharmacy and Public health at the top of this page. Each section lists specific topic pages that contain learning materials and other relevant resources. Our learning gateways also allow you to see all the materials you have previously accessed so you can keep track of your learning. Take a look at the range of topics by selecting one of the links at the top of the page.
