The new RPS Foundation Pharmacist Framework is published today to support the future of pharmacy education and training across the UK. The new framework sets out the capabilities that will be needed by foundation pharmacists to meet the growing demand for pharmacists to provide increasingly complex clinical care across a range of settings. The framework has a greater focus on clinical capabilities including preparation for prescribing.
Boots UK and the Pharmacists’ Defence Association Union (PDAU) today signed their first voluntary recognition agreement. This means the PDAU will now have collective bargaining rights for negotiation on pay, hours and holiday, as well as consultative meetings on a range of topics, representing PDAU members who are store-based Boots pharmacists and pre-registration pharmacists.
