Community Pharmacy – A career choice in Scotland, a new joint NPA and CCA resource to promote community pharmacy to school pupils is now available

The NPA/CCA Community Pharmacy – A career choice in Scotland resource includes a PowerPoint presentation, information handouts, activity sheet, and further information on how to become part of the community pharmacy team in Scotland.

The pack describes the role of a community pharmacist, why it is valuable career choice and how to find out more about becoming a community pharmacist. In addition to pharmacists, the resource highlights other community pharmacy roles including Pharmacy technicians, pharmacy dispensers and healthcare assistants.  The pack, developed in consultation with school teachers, provides a number of ways to offer pharmacy information to school pupils at their subject choice stage and when considering careers either in class time or at career fairs.

NPA members in Scotland can use the resource to provide support to schools directly by attending career events, or by signposting the resource to their local schools.
