About

Clinical Pharmacy Practice at Keele University is one of the most flexible learning programmes on offer.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

From new scopes of practice and greater interprofessional collaboration, to changing regulations and service developments, the pharmacy profession is continually evolving to meet the desire for more efficient and effective patient care.

CPD has become crucial to ensure pharmacists — and the profession as a whole — are able to respond and adapt to rapidly changing healthcare systems and needs. Clinical Pharmacy Practice is offered at Keele University .

Career

Health agencies across the UK, including the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK, NHS England and NHS Improvement, all agree that pharmacists and pharmacy technicians need the knowledge, clinical skills and behaviours required to provide more patient-centred care.

The NHS in particular is committed to meeting the challenges of a growing and ageing population with the next generation of pro-active, preventative health care, education, advice and treatment. It wants pharmacy professionals to: embrace new ways of working as part of multidisciplinary healthcare teams in GP practices, care homes and urgent care settings such as NHS 111; deliver better and safer services to patients and the public; and help ensure value from the NHS’ investment in medicines.
