As the landscape of pharmacy care evolves, it’s essential for pharmacists to expand their expertise, especially in areas directly impacting patient health. Recognising this need, we’re thrilled to introduce a game-changing course: ‘Introduction to Aural Examination.’ Designed specifically for pharmacists, this course is a vital step forward in aligning with the innovative Pharmacy First Service. Join us as we explore how this course not only enhances your professional skillset but also plays a crucial role in the transformative world of pharmacy healthcare.

Understanding Pharmacy First Service

Before diving into the specifics of our new course, it’s essential to understand the context in which it becomes increasingly relevant. The Pharmacy First Service (PFS) marks a significant shift in community healthcare, set to replace the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service. This advanced service, detailed in the NHS England website, introduces seven new clinical pathways, empowering pharmacists to play a more substantial role in patient care.

Under PFS, pharmacists will have the authority to offer professional advice, supply NHS medicines, and even dispense some prescription-only medicines under Patient Group Directions. This expanded scope is particularly pertinent for treating common health conditions, such as earache, aligning with our latest course offering.
