Community Pharmacy Free Training Campaign

New, fully funded, flexible training for community pharmacists is now available to help expand your clinical skills and improve patient care.

Courses include:

  • Independent Prescribing – training to support patients from diagnosis to prescribing, providing advice and follow-up, and preparing to provide clinical care.

Courses are offered by a range of universities and education providers.

Please note: This funded training is available to community pharmacists including locums, and to pharmacists in primary care, secondary care and Health and Justice.

  • Clinical Examination Skills – offering a step towards Independent Prescribing and an opportunity to gain new specialist skills to increase your NHS role or to expand and refresh your diagnostic and consultation skills if you’re already an IP.

Training is tailored to your skills, experience and individual learning requirements.

Complete the gateway module in approximately 1 hour online, followed by one of four specialist modules in cardiology, paediatrics, ENT or dermatology.

Optional in-person, practical training sessions are also available.

There is a new Community Pharmacy Training Page on the HEE website outlining current NHS funded training offers for community pharmacy professionals.
