Our training has been developed to support the development of a person-centred pharmacy technician workforce, ready to work across a range of healthcare settings.
Funded training is available now for pharmacy technicians, to help them provide high quality, patient-focused medicines optimisation across all sectors, in line with the NHS Long Term Plan.
Learn more about these opportunities below:
This training is designed for pharmacy technicians and pharmacists working in care settings to improve or develop the delivery of multidisciplinary care skills, to allow greater integration with the NHS locally.
The training is an 18-month workplace-based model, with the last learner cohort starting in September 2019.
Upon completion, you will be able to work with the skills, knowledge and confidence to deliver medicines optimisation for the benefit of patients, as part of an integrated multidisciplinary team.
Pharmacy technicians and pharmacists will become fully integrated members of the clinical multidisciplinary team in a patient-facing role to clinically assess and care for patients, using their expert knowledge of medicines for specific disease areas.
Also open to pharmacy technicians working in health and justice.
The training programme is delivered nationally by the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education
This pilot community pharmacy technician training programme is run by Coventry University and supported by Coventry LPC (Local Pharmaceutical Committee).
It aims to enable registered community pharmacy technicians to develop their professional and leadership roles within community pharmacy, alongside targeted workforce and organisational development.
The pilot completed in December 2018, and the outputs will inform the next steps for rollout of training and education nationally.
This 18-month workplace-based training programme provides pharmacy technicians with the clinical skills they need to deliver person-centred care in line with the NHS Long Term Plan.
The 48 pharmacy technicians accepted on this training pathway are expected to play an active part in multi-professional teams in a patient-facing role. This might be in a patient’s own home, in a care home, in a GP surgery or other primary care setting.
They will follow the training pathway established for Clinical Pharmacists in Primary Care, studying with their peers.
Two cohorts start in January and May 2020.
The training programme is delivered nationally by the Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE). Find out more on the CPPE website.
