NES welcomes new Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) credentialing service
The new credentialing and approval service for consultant pharmacists in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland is in line with the recent career framework review recommendations for Scotland.
Credentialing is the process by which we ensure the competence and capabilities of pharmacists. And this new service creates a national model for credentialing; creating workforce standards for clinical pharmacy leaders to continue delivering improved patient care.
The recent career framework review carried out on behalf of Scotland’s chief pharmaceutical officer (CMO), proposes a route for advanced practice pharmacists, leading to consultant level pharmacists.
Professor Anne Watson, NES’s Postgraduate Pharmacy Dean, said:
“The RPS's new credentialing service will provide a consistent approach - ensuring credentialed practitioners have the correct knowledge, skills, behaviours and experience. It will ensure the right people take up approved consultant pharmacist posts. In Scotland, it will support the ambitious plans for pharmacists as medicine experts - as well as the changing demands of the profession.”
