Build capability, confidence and professional services
Knowledge, skills and more...
Developing professionalism, professional capability and professional practice will be critical for the pharmacy professions if we are to be seen as relevant and compelling to consumers of services, commissioners of services, other health care providers and Government within future health and care systems.
Revalidation is a GPhC requirement for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. It aims to keep your skills up to date and demonstrate to the public that they are too. Check out the requirements on the GPhC’s website and, if you are an RPS member, there is a dedicated support section on their website.
However, professional development goes beyond revalidation, it is about ensuring that, as a pharmacy professional, you are always competent for your area of practise. There are many opportunities to continue to develop professional capability in order to create an opportunity to deliver new services and take on new roles, including potentially becoming an independent prescriber. The RPS Faculty is one way of recording and demonstrating your professional development.
Developing your professional practice includes the knowledge and skills to deliver commissioned and private services such as Flu vaccination and Travel Health. Through our Complete Partners programme we work closely with Hubnet who offer training and access to a full range of travel and other PGDs.
We also offer a number of leadership and management development training programmes.
