Course summary

Kick-start your pharmacy career, or take an already successful career to the next level, with this professional-skills based course. The course is designed to help you meet the challenges of modern practice, and fulfil your professional potential. You’ll discover how to work with growing patient complexity and higher patient turnover, as well as how to excel in increasingly pressured professional environments.

The course is aimed at all patient-facing pharmacists. Whatever your sector, you will develop the clinical and organisational skills required to participate fully and competitively in the changing NHS.

You’ll learn from senior pharmacists who continue to maintain patient-facing responsibility themselves, as well as senior academic pharmacists. Collectively, our PGDip team have contributed to and shaped the design and undertaking of post-registration pharmacist training, both nationally and internationally. So you’ll be learning at the forefront of the field.


As a team of working professionals ourselves, we understand the pressures faced by other pharmacists – especially those new to the profession. Patient numbers are increasing and their needs are becoming ever-more complex. High patient turnover means you need to work efficiently, accurately and with high impact.

With all this in mind, we have designed a Postgraduate Diploma programme through which we aim to create able and confident practitioners. We’ll help you cultivate the ability to integrate and contribute to the health care team as a whole, show leadership within the pharmacy profession, and have a clear and positive impact on every patient’s health.?

You’ll cover topics including basic clinical skills and drug knowledge across a wide range of therapeutic areas. You’ll also hone your general practice knowledge, ensuring that you have the ability to maximise patient safety, conduct simple research, teach your peers, introduce change within the workplace, and to engage with both the national agenda for pharmacy and the wider NHS.?

The course is open to all professional pharmacists. Whatever your sector, you will all be taught together in a single learning cohort. The aim of our approach is to improve the general NHS literacy of all practitioners and raise awareness of specialist sector skills and services, as insight that extends beyond your own role has real benefits for patients.

Our Pharmacy Practice department is grant holding, research generating, and renowned for both its research output and the quality of its teaching. And our postgraduate team works very closely with pharmacist employers throughout the region to ensure that the course remains responsive and fit for purpose.
