Pharmacy Workforce Development South (PWDS) are pleased to have provided an organisational response to the public consultation for the APTUK/PCPA National Competency Framework (NCF) for Primary Care Pharmacy Technicians in recognition of the importance of this framework in supporting the support safe practice and professionalism in primary care, inform the education and training requirements and further the professional development of pharmacy technicians working in primary care.
The development of a National Competency Framework (NCF) for Primary Care Pharmacy Technicians was led by APTUK in collaboration with Primary Care Pharmacy Association and was launched in September 2020
The framework provides a set of standard core competencies that underpin the knowledge, skills, behaviours and attitudes required for pharmacy technicians working in and across primary care roles. It is designed to support the safe practice and professionalism required to meet a portfolio of roles across primary care, not limiting to one particular area of practice. It also informs the education and training requirements and provides a basis to further the professional development of pharmacy technicians working in these roles.
