Midlands and East - Postgraduate School of Pharmacy and Medicines
Developing the workforce to deliver the outcomes of medicines optimisation

Pharmacy and Medicines across Midlands and East

Health Education England (HEE) exists for one reason only: to support the delivery of excellent healthcare and health improvement to the patients and public of England. Working across Midlands and East, we ensure that the workforce of today and tomorrow has the right numbers, skills, values and behaviours, at the right time and in the right place.

The vision we are working towards is to develop the workforce to enable patients, carers and the wider health and social care workforce to benefit from their medicines through clinical pharmacy. To achieve the goal by working effectively and efficiently across HEE and wider NHS so at an individual level, the workforce can be trained appropriately for their role and be supported through their career with the right infrastructure to deliver in a complex and changing environment.

The new Postgraduate School of Pharmacy and Medicines has been developed as part of the wider schools’ structure within the Midlands and East region. The school has been developed to promote and enable workforce transformation, and education and training in relation to medicines.  The Postgraduate School comprises a small team, led by Rosalyne Cheeseman, Pharmacy Dean and support by the regional functional expertise. The initial deliverable of the postgraduate school is to develop the governance across Midlands and East for decisions impacting on the Pharmacy Workforce.

The school will work with colleagues both regionally and nationally to understand the workforce challenges and support people to achieve better outcomes and use of medicines.
