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.
The programme works on a philosophy of student-centered workplace learning, supported by workbooks and learning sets facilitated by experienced pharmacy practitioners. The practitioner students are expected to take responsibility for managing their learning and achieving the course objectives in support of their Continuing Professional Development.
