NB: Pharmacy technicians working in large multiples that have their own in-house programmes (Boots & Lloyds) are not eligible for the programme

Comment from the CPPE lead for the programme:

This is a time-limited offer that is funded by the Pharmacy Integration Fund (PhIF). The deciding factor for future funding on a wider scale for ACPT training will be uptake of the programme so your support is really important.

There are FAQs and further info on the dedicated web page: www.cppe.ac.uk/acpt or if your questions are still not unanswered, you can email acpt@cppe.ac.uk directly.
