Read about our work with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society.
Centre for Pharmacy Postgraduate Education (CPPE)
We have been working together with CPPE for a number of years. They support us to raise awareness of the charity and our support services at their events and through their networks. CPPE also support us to highlight the importance of wellbeing and mental health across the sector.
CPPE has been involved in our ACTNow campaigns by sharing tips on leadership and thoughts about how learning boosts confidence. We’ve also held joint sessions at key sector events, run wellbeing workshops for their team and supported other CPPE events. For example, we regularly support their Return to Practice courses.
Through working closely with the team at CPPE, we hope to connect further with teams and individuals across our pharmacy family and encourage them to reach out to us when they need support.
CPPE aims to help you grow your confidence and self-esteem through continued learning, one of the five ways to wellbeing. They offer high-quality learning materials for all pharmacy professionals, enabling skill development and supporting workforce transformation across England. They run a number of face-to-face workshops each semester facilitated by local pharmacy tutors, as well as many workshops online. There is also a range of creative online learning programmes available through their website to help pharmacy professionals reach their full potential at a pace that suits them. CPPE is also commissioned by NHS England to run the Primary care pharmacy education pathway, which equips pharmacy professionals with the knowledge, skills and experience to work in various patient-facing roles in primary care networks.
We know that we can only care for others if we can care for ourselves. Pharmacists are fortunate to have a charity which was set up specifically to offer this care and to help them to keep doing what they do best. We are pleased to support the charity, both through our own fundraising activities and through supporting the wider work that they do. We are proud to share their can-do attitude to making a difference.CPPE Director, Matthew Shaw
