NHS funded accuracy checking training for community pharmacy technicians now available

July 6, 2018

The Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE) has extended its Accuracy Checking Pharmacy Technician pilot until September 2018 and is accepting applications from pharmacy technicians working in community pharmacies across England. Originally the pilot was just open to pharmacy technicians in London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Places on the programme are funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund.

The course can last for up to 12 months, consisting of eight hours of online study (which can be broken down into smaller blocks) and collation of checking logs in the workplace.

The programme aims to equip pharmacy technicians with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to provide:

  • final accuracy checks of medicines that have been approved or clinically screened by a pharmacist;
  • leadership in their practice; and
  • optimisation of the skill mix in the pharmacy team.

For more information including the programme handbook, how to apply and deadlines for application, visit the CPPE website.
