Pharmacists with a Special Interest (PhwSI)

Pharmacists with a Special Interest (PhwSI)

The Department of Health and NHS Primary Care Contracting launched a national framework for Pharmacists with a Special Interest (PhwSI) in September 2006.

It included a definition, guidance on how PhwSI services can be put in place, a competency framework for PhwSIs and examples of current service models similar to PhwSI. Pharmacists would have to undergo extra competency based training beyond their core professional role, and become accredited, in order to demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills before becoming a PhwSI.
