With investment from the Pharmacy Integration Fund (PhIF), NHS England is working with Health Education England to further clinical education and development for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
CPPE is working in collaboration with the NHS Leadership Academy to offer the Mary Seacole Leadership Programme to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians working in community pharmacy. Places on the programme are being fully funded to participants via the PhIF.
This NHS-led flagship programme is designed to develop your leadership and management skills to enable you to drive quality services in community pharmacy and really make a difference to the health of the patients you see.
I’m a locum pharmacist, why does clinical leadership matter to me? As a locum pharmacist you could be walking into a new pharmacy environment every week, with a new team to support and lead, meeting new patients who need your advice and guidance.
Where do your strengths lie as a locum pharmacist? Are you confident you can quickly establish how the pharmacy runs, who the key leaders are and how you can provide the best pharmaceutical care to patients in a new environment?
The Mary Seacole leadership programme will help you develop the skills and behaviours to be a leader in a new and diverse team and be the best pharmacy professional you can be. Go to our dedicated Mary Seacole leadership page for more information, dates and locations available. https://www.cppe.ac.uk/services/leadership-community#navTop
