Get more involved with IT

PSNC works with the other national pharmacy bodies and NHS Digital to support pharmacy contractors to make the best use of current and future pharmacy technologies to maximise patient benefit. Contractors and their teams that want to help improve community pharmacy IT can engage in the following ways:

Share your IT best practice

If you are a contractor who would like to share best practices and IT tips, or take part in short video clips about IT, then please contact our IT Lead, or complete details at the IT feedback form.

Learn more about IT and how to code

Learn more about pharmacy IT by viewing our information on pharmacy IT policies and structures, considering further digital training and exploring our IT hub page.

If you want to get involved in coding IT systems, the Code4health initiative may provide opportunities to learn more about this aspect of IT.

Attend an IT event in person or remotely

Events which will include a focus on healthcare IT are listed further below.

Some of the face-to-face events timings and formats may be subject to change because of COVID-19 developments. Some events will be re-scheduled or will be moved to a virtual format.

Events list

(One-off and annual events are highlighted gold. Also see: previously listed events, Kings Fund events, and Digitalhealth.net webinars/events).

To have an event added here, please contact it@psnc.org.uk.

Discuss IT with colleagues

Consider use of social media to discuss community pharmacy IT matters. PSNC has a Guide to pharmacy social media use.

Join Community Pharmacy Digital email Group (CPDG). The email discussion forum is a place for pharmacy staff, and Local Pharmaceutical Committee (LPC) members to share ideas about digital pharmacy matters using an email address. CPDG also helps to inform Community Pharmacy IT Group’s (CP ITG’s) work.

 

Provide feedback, respond to consultations and take part in other ways

Feedback / take part

PSNC would like feedback from contractors and their teams on all aspects of pharmacy IT, including:

Contractors may also feed back ideas about their PMR systems to their system suppliers: Making your EPS system work for you.

Volunteer to be a digital pioneer

Surveys 

Look-out for IT survey opportunities including those highlighted for those pharmacy team members that join Community Pharmacy Digital email Group (CPDG) or for those that are signed up to the PSNC newsletter.
