Interface pharmacists have an average of over 7 years of post graduate clinical practice experience, and take a proactive approach to continuing professional development. Interface invests heavily in job-related learning, service-specific training, field visits undertaken by senior clinical staff, and the commissioning of external post-graduate development courses where appropriate.
Interface pharmacists operate to the code of ethics and standards defined in the Medicines, Ethics, and Practice guide produced by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, and are registered with their respective regulatory bodies (General Pharmaceutical Council and/or Pharmaceutical Society of Northern Ireland). Regular checks are made against the records of The Disclosure and Barring Service (England and Wales), Disclosure Scotland and/or Access Northern Ireland.
During project delivery, Interface pharmacists are directly accountable to an authorising GP from the practice, and work within the confines of a clinical protocol which is signed off by the authorising GP ahead of commencement of any service delivery work. It is the responsibility of the Clinical Director to ensure all Interface pharmacists have received appropriate training to deliver the specifications of any project to which they are assigned.
