The Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy Programme is a comprehensive leadership series aiming to unlock the potential of Wales’s future pharmacy leaders. By embedding collective leadership behaviours within the pharmacy sector, this programme hopes to support our future leaders in maximising the opportunities created by health and social care integration and novel models of care.
The modern NHS, and associated health and social care landscape, continues to undergo change at an exceptional rate and scale. Pharmacy leaders, both now and in the future, are likely to encounter increasing challenges to the profession amidst an evolving leadership culture and climate. Pharmacy Management understands the high priority challenge that this presents, and has therefore worked closely with senior pharmacists in Wales to design and deliver our unique approach to leadership development.
“It is clear that as the profile and challenges for Pharmacy extend we need to invest time and support to the development of Leaders for the future who are equipped with the right skills, knowledge and ability to continue to improve population health, patient care and value for money”
Judith Vincent, Clinical Director for Integrated Pharmacy, ABM University Health Board and Chair of the NHS Wales Chief Pharmacist Peer Group
The content of the Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy programme has been shaped by the Chief Pharmacists for Welsh Health Boards. These are forward-thinking, influential leaders in pharmacy, who have had a key role in mentoring programme delegates through their personal development journey.
In this way, the leaders of today will work with the leaders of tomorrow as an engaged and involved workforce, realising collective responsibility for leadership in pharmacy.
“Developing and equipping the future clinical leaders to the highest standards is essential to meet the demands and maximise the opportunities within healthcare. RPS Wales is very pleased to be associated with this programme”
Suzanne Scott Thomas, Clinical Director for Pharmacy, Cwm Taf University Health Board and Chair of RPS Wales Board
Pharmacy Management has worked closely with the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) to align the Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy programme to the RPS Faculty competencies for Leadership, Management and Collaborative Working Relationships. In recognition of the high quality training, delivered to recognised RPS standards and in line with the Advanced Pharmacy Framework, this programme has been granted RPS Faculty Accreditation.
All successful applicants are required to contribute £100 towards the cost of this educational programme. However, the programme will be predominantly funded by a limited number of pharmaceutical companies. These companies will have no input into the design or content of the programme, but each company will have one delegate from their organisation participating in the programme.
The Clinical Leadership in Pharmacy programme offers pharmacy professionals an exciting opportunity to enhance their effectiveness within current and future roles. The programme includes a broad suite of leadership training events aimed at transforming delegates’ leadership capabilities, through the development of appropriate skills and behaviours.
The programme comprises a total of ten learning days over a twelve month period with supporting written materials also provided.
