Devon Teach and Treat Pilot – Call for Expressions of Interest from Community Pharmacy

To support more community pharmacists to become independent prescribers, the Devon Teach and Treat pilot has been extended to support pharmacists to undertake their independent prescribing qualification next year.

The Teach and Treat pilot provides access to suitable supervisors and clinical environments.

Developing independent prescribing within community pharmacy will give patients an additional point of access to experienced and skilled clinicians who will be able to consult, assess, diagnose and prescribe within a specific remit. In turn, this should assist with some of the workload experienced by general practice and urgent care.

The Devon Integrated Care System is supporting a Teach and Treat Pilot. This pilot is led by an experienced non-medical prescriber, using a cross-sector, multi-professional model to identify appropriate supervision and clinical environment for trainee prescribers. The Teach and Treat lead will provide some DPP capacity directly, coordinate supervision for all T&T trainees and provide clinical skills examination sessions to complement the prescribing course.

We are inviting Expressions of Interest from community pharmacists who wish to undertake their independent prescribing qualification, next year, with the support of the Devon Teach and Treat pilot. You can complete your EOI here.

If you have previously applied, but were unsuccessful, you are welcome to submit another EOI.
