Educational Support for NHS Pharmacy First Scotland service

Scottish Government have announced the launch of a new redesigned minor ailment and common clinical conditions service from April 2020 under the name NHS Pharmacy First Scotland (circular PCA (P) (2020) 3). To support the roll out of the service NES Pharmacy has organised Face to face events in all Heath Board areas (with VC in some boards) and a webinar. An up to date list of all events is available on Turas Learn:

In addition, we have developed an e-learning module, which was launched on the 9th March 2020. This e-learning is mandatory for all community pharmacists who practise in Scotland as detailed in Scottish Government circular PCA (P) (2020) 3. You can access the modules here:  

Pharmacy First

Finally, we intend to print and send a quick reference flyer to all pharmacies in Scotland, to support community pharmacy teams to implement this service.
