This programme, launching in Autumn 2021, has been aligned to the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Post-Registration Foundation pharmacist curriculum and has been developed with key stakeholders to include specific requirements and content to reflect the needs of the patients, workforce and service delivery in NHS Scotland. The programme promises to provide supported structured training with dedicated support from Senior Educators from the Post – Registration Foundation team. A key aspect of this specific programme is that it includes entry onto an Independent Prescribing course delivered by one of the universities in Scotland.
The programme is for newly qualified pharmacists in patient-focussed roles in any sector of practice. To be able to achieve the outcomes, the pharmacist’s role must include direct patient-facing contact and working in an area of practice in which they will develop their prescribing capabilities.
Registration to commence the training programme takes place twice annually. Registration for October 2022 will open from the 1st August 2022 until the 31st August 2022. For more information for pharmacists who may wish to join the programme in October 2022 please click here.
