Pharmacy Training Programme 2017

The East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub undertook a consultation with pharmacy members to understand their legal requirements and current areas of interest regarding legal advice and legislation. 

The response was excellent and we compiled a list of ‘hot topics’ of key interest to our members.  As a direct result, we hosted two training sessions in autumn 2016 which formed the first part of the pharmacy training programme we will be hosting over the coming year.

This programme is aimed specifically at pharmacy staff and complements our generic Hub training programme. The training sessions are free to access for pharmacy member Trusts, however spaces are limited and booking will be on a first come first serve basis.

Pharmacy Outsourcing – 12th October - COMPLETED

One of the issues which came high on the list of topics of interest to pharmacy staff was Pharmacy Outsourcing. Leading law firm Bevan Brittan led the training session on this issue.

VAT Issues – 9th December - COMPLETED

KPMG presented at our Pharmacy Procurement Conference in March 2016 and we received fantastic feedback from their session on VAT.  We were delighted to welcome them back to explore this topic in more detail.

We are in the process of scheduling further training sessions and these will be announced in due course. Please check back here or our events page for the latest information, or follow us on Twitter @EOECPH.
