CPPE collaborates to bring Mary Seacole Leadership Programme to community pharmacy professionals

September 14, 2017

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) is collaborating with the NHS Leadership Academy, as part of Health Education England, to offer the Mary Seacole Leadership Programme to pharmacy professionals (pharmacists and pharmacy technicians) working in community pharmacy.

This programme is NHS-led and designed to develop leadership and management skills to drive quality services in community pharmacy.  It is a six-month long programme to prepare participants for the demands of leadership in the healthcare system today, and into the future.

The programme is funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund and offers the opportunity to build on previous leadership training completed through the Healthy Living Pharmacy initiative or for those embarking on leadership training for the first time.

Pharmacy professionals must spend at least 40% of their working week in community pharmacy to be eligible to apply for the programme.

Applications are now open for the four cohorts in Manchester, the South East, Nottingham and London. There will be a further 11 programme cohorts announced across England over the next few months. CPPE has suggested that pharmacy professionals register onto a programme in their local area but if dates of workshops are not convenient, then it is possible to register onto another cohort. (Please note, since this news story was published, applications are now open for all 15 cohorts across the country).

To find out more information, including on dates, how to apply and why you should apply, visit the CPPE website.
