Mary Seacole Leadership Programme for Community Pharmacy.

A fully funded NHS led flagship programme available to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians which is designed to develop leadership and management skills.

Places will be offered as soon as people apply, so prompt application is advised to guarantee a place.


Community pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are being offered the fantastic opportunity to apply for a place on this programme, being delivered in partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy and fully funded via the Pharmacy Integration Fund.

The programme is open to any pharmacist or pharmacy technician who spends at least 40% of their week working in a community pharmacy and we are hoping to reach around 600 people in total over the next year. It runs over 6 months with 3 contact days spread over the duration of the course, all delivered by the NHS Leadership Academy.
