Continuing professional development: Diary
Independent pharmacist gears up for everything
Ramesh Patel is an independent community pharmacist in Hounslow, Middlesex, and has been on the Register for 29 years. Mr Patel works a busy six-day week (9am to 7pm) and has three children, one of whom is also a pharmacist
An example of CPD that I have done recently is to go to an update on the new contract, organised by Hounslow PCT. These meetings are held every two or three months in a room at a local college and run from 7 to 9pm. We are usually given at least a month’s notice, so it is easy to plan to get away from the pharmacy on time. The meetings are always well attended and you get to catch up with other local pharmacists.
I have not yet got round to recording using the Society’s “Plan and record” system but have been keeping notes of the CPD I have done. I know I have to start using it now. I do not think I will use the website however, because I am not so comfortable with typing.
