CPPE has announced that their Accuracy checking pharmacy technician (ACPT) pilot is being extended for its final three months.  Course leaflet

To test demand, this programme is available to pharmacy technicians working in community pharmacies across England, until September 2018.

Places on the programme are funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund via Health Education England.

The course can last for up to 12 months, consisting of eight hours of online study (which can be broken down into smaller blocks) and collation of checking logs in the workplace.

The online and workplace based nature of the programme is designed to ensure minimal disruption to day-to-day activities in the workplace.

The training and extensive assessment has been designed to provide the flexibility to meet the needs of pharmacy teams and allow pharmacy technicians to develop their role and make a difference to the patient experience.

The programme aims to equip pharmacy technicians with the knowledge, skills and behaviours to provide:

  • final accuracy checks of medicines that have been approved or clinically screened by a pharmacist
  • leadership in their practice
  • optimisation of the skill mix in the pharmacy team.
