Pharmacist knowledge and skills requirements

Before they are able to deliver the NMS, pharmacists must have the necessary skills and knowledge and are required to sign the NMS self-assessment form to declare this. The completed form should be kept as a record by the pharmacy contractor.

Learning Materials

CPPE

The NMS programmes from CPPE are part of a range of learning materials which have been developed collaboratively by pharmacy organisations to support the introduction of the service. The learning materials consist of an open learning programme, a local solutions workshop and a CPPE e-learning video wall. All the materials have been designed to help you become a pharmacist leader in the setting up of a new medicine service in your practice, offering consistently high levels of patient care.

New Medicine Service open learning programme - this programme aims to provide you with an understanding of the purpose and scope of the service. On completing the programme you will be able to write a personal action plan to support you and your pharmacy team in delivering a patient-centred, effective new medicine service, as part of your day-to-day practice. This open learning programme is essential pre-reading for the local solutions workshop.
