Pharmacy Integration Fund
Health Education England/NHS England Pharmacy Integration Fund
The Health Education England/NHS England Pharmacy Integration Fund pays for Community Pharmacists to study the Pharmacist Independent Prescribing module at Sheffield Hallam University.
To access this funding, learners must be pharmacists who are deployed as part of the following programmes:
- Clinical Pharmacists in General Practice phase 2
- Medicines Optimisation in Care Homes
- Clinical Pharmacists in Integrated Urgent Care
These programmes are fully funded by Health Education England (HEE) and available to all Pharmacists providing NHS services to patients where independent prescribing is appropriate to their role. Please note HEE only funds the cost of the course. HEE does not fund work place costs e.g. supervision or remuneration for time on the course.
Sharing of information
Your particular attention is drawn to the following policy statement from NHS England:
“We want to ensure that courses funded by the NHS Pharmacy Integration Fund give pharmacists and pharmacy technicians the opportunity to successfully gain skills, knowledge and experience through education and training. We may therefore access and review students’ data and seek students’ views and experience of the courses, in order to evaluate the courses and training and understand what works and what could be improved. The evaluation work will be led by NHS England but NHS England may contract with third parties to undertake this work. To support this work, students will be asked to consent to their personal data including demographic data, contact information, and data on course completion being shared with the evaluation team, in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Data Protection Act 2018. Students will also be asked to consent to the evaluation team utilising their contact information to make contact with them to obtain feedback and to invite them on occasion to provide more in-depth feedback via workshops, focus groups or written case studies.”
