The overall aim of this programme is to provide general-level pharmacists, registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council and working within the NHS, with the core skills and competencies required to provide holistic pharmaceutical care in the practice setting.

The programme aligns with a nationally agreed pharmacy practitioner development strategy and is the result of a unique collaboration of higher education institutions across London and the south and east of England.

The programme develops the practitioner student's underpinning knowledge and skills in clinical pharmacy practice and medicines management.
