NHS England launches community pharmacy leadership training

A programme aimed at developing leadership and management skills in clinical settings is being offered to community pharmacy professionals for the first time

Pharmacists with skills for the future

A new type of pharmacist is now emerging from university, suggests Noel Wicks Having just celebrated my 39th birthday, it is with some difficulty that I now look back and recall my time at university. I do remember how enjoyable it was and, in particular, I remember my first ever pharmacy practice lesson. This was the subject that most students were excited about doing because, unlike inorganic chemistry, people felt it most represented what they expected to be doing when they qualified. Two things from that first lesson have stuck in my mind ever since. The first thing was the total luxury of having three hours to dispense six prescriptions. The second was the ejection of a classmate who thought it would be fine to rock up 10 minutes late without his lab coat. We learned a couple of important lessons that day: that our pharmacist teacher-practitioner didn’t take any prisoners, and that we were expected to think and, more importantly, behave like professionals. You’ll be glad to know, by the way, that the miscreant in question was allowed back into the next pharmacy practice session, which he made sure he was the first to arrive for.
