HEALTH Ed­u­ca­tion Eng­land has an­nounced the avail­abil­ity of up to 2,000 post-reg­is­tra­tion train­ing places for com­mu­nity phar­ma­cists, in an ini­tia­tive to be paid for the govern­ment’s Phar­macy In­te­gra­tion Fund which aims to help trans­form the role of phar­macy in the UK.

Cour­ses will be of­fered at Bath, Manch­ester, Keele, Ex­eter and De Mont­fort uni­ver­si­ties, with op­tions in­clud­ing ‘in­tro­duc­tion to phar­macy pub­lic health ser­vices,’ ‘ap­plied ther­a­peu­tics’ and ‘men­tal health’ worth up to 60 cred­its - equiv­a­lent to a post­grad­u­ate cer­tifi­cate in phar­macy.

The fund­ing does not cover su­per­vi­sion or re­mu­ner­a­tion for study time and par­tic­i­pat­ing phar­ma­cists must be spon­sored by a phar­macy to ac­cess the mod­ules.
