The Community Pharmacy South Central Academy organises development events for pharmacy professionals on behalf of CPSC
CPSC is delighted to be able to offer all contractors in Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth the opportunity to participate in the CPSC Academy.
In these challenging times, it has never been more important for community pharmacy and those involved in healthcare service provision to develop their capabilities and ensure they can be the best they can be. There are many opportunities as pharmacy professionals to develop, and you will find many local engagement events on our CPSC Academy Events calendar. In addition to events offered by CPPE, RPS Wessex and others, we will be supporting you with our Academy programme of four planned themed events each year; each one being available from five different locations across the Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth localities.
The purpose of the Academy is to:

Our Academy series is being supported by Hampshire-based pharmacy training specialists, Pharmacy Complete
Look out for the dates in the CPSC Academy Events calendar and book in now to fully benefit from this development opportunity. We do hope that you enjoy attending Academy events and that they facilitate you being able to work at the top of your profession more of the time.
These weekly webinars temporarily replace the face to face CPSC Academy events originally planned for May.
They provide local support and advice for our pharmacy contractors. The events are provided by CPSC and our local training expert partner Pharmacy Complete.
Community pharmacy is at the frontline of the NHS committed to provision of medicines, care and advice whilst facing unprecedented demand and under extreme pressure. CPSC will do everything we can to support you and ensure you receive relevant, practical and accurate information about COVID-19.
There is now so much information coming out about COVID-19 that it is difficult to find the time to know where to look. We are therefore running these weekly webinars to pull information together in one place in a half-hour weekly briefing.
The webinars are continuing to run for all contractors, community pharmacists and their teams as a replacement to the face to face CPSC Academy events originally planned for September.
We had been running weekly webinars throughout April and May, but have now decided to move to fortnightly updates as we enter the next phase of the pandemic. This will however, be reviewed depending on the pace of change in all things impacting on pharmacy - as we all know the picture is forever evolving, so we will review this accordingly.
We remain committed to ensuring you have all the latest information quickly in one place, that you know where to find out more and understand the impact on you. We will also continue to use the questions and points of concern you raise during the live events to raise with local commissioners and feedback to PSNC as appropriate. We will continue to send our our weekly newsletter and keep our COVID-19 hub page updated.
There is now so much information coming out about COVID-19 that it is difficult to find the time to know where to look. The webinars help to pull information together in one place in a concise half-hour briefing.
