COVID-19 Pharmacy Resources

This page has been developed to host a range of educational and induction resources for all pharmacy staff and students being deployed or redeployed to support the pharmacy workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic.  This page will be regularly reviewed and updated in line with current advice and as new material becomes available.

During this unprecedented time, the GPhC have issued a joint statement with PSNI recognising that professionals may need to depart from established procedures in order to care for patients and people using health and social care services.
