Welcome to the East of England School of Pharmacy and Medicines Optimisation 


Creating a skilled and flexible pharmacy workforce operating in multi-professional clinical teams delivering safe, sustainable and value based medicines optimisation.  


The school of pharmacy and medicines optimisation in the east of England will be collaborative, innovative and multi-professional to support the NHS Long Term Plan aspirations for pharmacy practice.  


Our aim is to deliver HEE’s mandate to equip the current and future pharmacy workforce with the right knowledge, skills, values and behaviours at the right time and in the right place to meet patient need. 

Our priority for 2022 is to deliver a new HEE pharmacist foundation trainee programme from July 2022. This programme will be designed to increase inclusion in foundation education, maximising the use of technology with dedicated educators and peer networks in our new Integrated Care Systems.

We will continue supporting people to access the pharmacy technician apprenticeship programme to train to work in multi professional teams in community pharmacy, hospitals, prisons and GP surgeries.

Leadership in pharmacy is essential to support happy, healthy pharmacy teams improving care for patients. We aim to support collaboration, collective leadership and shared learning within and across organisations in the east of England to improve medicines optimisation and medicines value.
