Paediatric Renal Pharmacy Staffing Standards

Paediatric Renal Pharmacy Staffing Standards

Dear Colleagues,

I am very pleased to announce the publication of these Paediatric Renal Pharmacy Staffing  Standards produced by the Neonatal and Paediatric Pharmacist Group (NPPG) in consultation with the Chief Paediatric Pharmacists Group (CPPG) and British Association for Paediatric
Nephrology (BAPN).

This resource recognises the contribution of pharmacy to the care of children with renal conditions and allows Trusts to assess the recommended pharmacist staffing requirements for this clinical area in order to provide appropriate support for the safe and effective use of medicines and improve patient outcomes. In addition, the standards provide an opportunity for pharmacists working in this practice area to review their current level of competence and any identify any developmental requirements.

I do hope that Trusts, Health Boards and external supporting organisations find these standards of use when reviewing pharmacy service requirements for this important clinical area.
