Press Releases (old)

  • 2020 has been an unprecedentedly tough year for pharmacy, with a lack of funding, mounting workloads and a global pandemic to contend with. In order to celebrate the incredible work of UK pharmacy teams during the COVID-19 pandemic, the C+D Awards has introduced two new categories for its 2020 ceremony – which is being held digitally for the first time on November 26.

  • LONDON: 20th October 2020 - Hundreds of Clinical Pharmacy Professionals gathered online from 23rd to 25th September for the first Clinical Pharmacy Congress (CPC) Live, a digital learning event for something missing here lead by world-class educators and industry experts. With over 1,600 users and 64 sessions, the event, first of its kind for the pharmacy sector, has been deemed a great success.

  • The pandemic has affected all of us in different ways. It has been particularly tough for the 2019-2020 pre-registration pharmacists. They were expecting to be able to sit their registration assessment in June or September 2020 but this has been delayed. At the time of writing, the date has not been announced.

  • Pharmacy professionals who have a registration renewal deadline between 1 September and 31 December 2020 will only need to submit a reflective account when they renew their registration. They will also need to make the required declarations and pay the fee. They will not need to submit a peer discussion record or any planned or unplanned CPD records.
  • According to a recent article published by the Institute for Safe Medical Practices, education is ‘‘predictably disappointing" and should never be relied upon alone to improve safety; the article revealed a hierarchy of risk-reduction strategies to improve patient safety and stated that training alone is not enough. In fact, it indicated education ranks among the least effective intervention when it comes to the effectiveness of risk-reduction.

  • Barts Health Pharmaceuticals (BHP) is at the forefront of shaping the future of pharmaceutical manufacturing education & training in the UK. They have led on the development of the first nationally recognised and accredited two year training programme for pharmacy manufacture. This takes the form of an apprenticeship called ‘Science Manufacturing Technician – Aseptic Pharmaceuticals’. The apprenticeship consists of three parts: a level 3 Knowledge Qualification; a Vocational Competency Evaluation Log (VCEL), an End Assessment.

    This two year programme incorporates a brand new Knowledge Qualification that is being funded through HEE and Talent for Care. BHP is leading on this with other industry colleagues and has also built an e-portfolio platform in which to deliver training and assessments for the VCEL. This apprenticeship will be ready for a January 2018 roll out.

    Additionally, BHP has developed and delivers an accredited introductory seven day course aimed at skilling pharmaceutical manufacture employees with the knowledge and skills needed to prepare aseptic products. The course is taught at BHP’s London hospital facilities, delivered by industry professionals and skilled teachers and mixes classroom activities with hands-on ‘real-life’ work in islolators within cleanroom environments. Trainees who complete the course will be ready to be integrated into operational technical services teams.
