The nature of pharmacy practice in Scotland is changing. The demands on pharmacists in all sectors is developing at pace.
Our CPD sessions will provide a friendly safe environment for pharmacist colleagues to meet, discuss and learn about current issues and challenges in their role. The agenda is focussed on patient safety and helping pharmacists make sure they are ready to take on the roles required of them.
