Health Education England are pleased to announce new, fully funded, NHS clinical examination skills training for community pharmacists.
This new offer will build on community pharmacists’ existing clinical examination and consultation skills – to assess, treat and manage common health problems.
10,000 module places will be available until March 2024.
About the training: Following completion of a pre-required, online gateway module on history taking and identification of serious conditions, pharmacists can choose their preferred journey through four optional modules, based on professional interests. These modules cover four key themes: dermatology, cardiology, paediatrics, and ear, nose and throat.
The module content will be delivered online using a flexible and responsive eLearning system, with optional face-to-face attendance for pharmacists who would find this beneficial. Pharmacists can complete the training at a pace and time of their choice. Face-to-face workshops will be scheduled to accommodate pharmacist working patterns.
The training is designed to be complementary to independent prescribing training and can be completed prior to or after independent prescribing training courses.
Who is eligible: This offer is available to community pharmacists, including part time staff and locums working in community pharmacy.
