Course content

The aim of the Postgraduate Diploma in General Pharmacy Practice (PG Dip GPP) is to provide Foundation training that equips registered pharmacists currently employed in NHS Hospital Trusts and private hospitals with the core knowledge, skills and capabilities required to provide safe and effective pharmaceutical care to their patients.

Through developing novice pharmacists to identify their own learning needs and address them, the programme aims to develop a workforce with the ability to reflect on learning and engage with continuing professional development throughout their careers and support others to do so. Assessments not only measure the knowledge base of trainees but also their competence to undertake a range of core tasks as well as an ability to demonstrate critical thought and innovation.
