CPPE Corner: Mary Seacole Leadership Programme

CPPE Corner: Mary Seacole Leadership Programme

November 15, 2017

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) is offering a new community pharmacy leadership programme funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund. We spoke to Lesley Grimes, CPPE lead pharmacist, learning development, to find out more.

We are collaborating with NHS Leadership Academy to offer the Mary Seacole Leadership Programme. This programme is available to all pharmacists or pharmacy technicians working in community pharmacy for at least 40% of their working week, and is fully-funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund.

If you are an aspiring or first-time leader wanting to achieve the best you can in your role, then the Mary Seacole Leadership Programme is the perfect opportunity for you and your career. The programme will help you recognise your own personal value to deliver the best outcomes for your patients and improve their experience of community pharmacy.

The programme runs for six months, and is comprised of 12 online modules supported by an online tutor, as well as three workshops delivered locally, allowing you to put your learning into practice.

The Mary Seacole Leadership Programme is accredited by the NHS Leadership Academy, and completing and passing the programme results in an NHS Leadership Academy Award in Healthcare
