NHS Education for Scotland

A skilled and sustainable workforce for a healthier Scotland

Post-Registration Foundation Programme for Newly Qualified Pharmacists in Scotland (Autumn 2021 onwards)

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.

Eligibility for inclusion in the training

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

Registration to commence the training programme takes place twice annually. If you are interested in being part of the first cohort of pharmacists commencing training this Autumn please see this information regarding the process for expressing an interest in training.
