Various dates across 2021
First introduced to the NHS in 2005, consultant pharmacists are leaders in the profession as well as senior clinical experts delivering care and driving change across the healthcare system.
The RPS have launched a brand new Consultant Pharmacist Credentialing service. We're looking forward to delivering a series of webinars across 2021 designed to assist you with the process and help you to understand the requirements to enter consultant-level pharmacy practice in England, Wales and Northern Ireland*.
The series will be hosted by Joseph Oakley, Head of Assessment and Credentialing at RPS and Stephen Doherty, Advanced Pharmacist Programme Lead at RPS and a member from our Consultant Pharmacist Task and Finish group.
These webinars are FREE for RPS Members. A fee of £50 applies for non-members.

We look forward to seeing you there!
