CPhO Global Health Fellows 2020

Graduation of first cohort of Chief Pharmaceutical Officer’s Global Pharmacy Fellows

Sixteen pharmacists volunteering as part of the Commonwealth Partnerships for Antimicrobial Stewardship (CwPAMS) programme completed a yearlong fellowship and on 4th September 2020 successfully graduate as the first cohort of the Chief Pharmaceutical Officer (CPhO) for England’s Global Health Fellows.

Following the announcement of the CwPAMS partnerships in early February 2019, the appointed pharmacy global health fellows have undertaken a yearlong fellowship as part of the CwPAMS programmes in Ghana, Uganda, Tanzania or Zambia. In addition, they completed a short Global Pharmacy Course supported by Brighton & Sussex Medical School as well as an adapted Health Education England (HEE) International Fellowship (IGH) Induction Programme, worked with a UK-based mentor throughout the Fellowship and have undertaken a leadership development experience using the NHS Healthcare Leadership model.

The development of the fellowship followed a request from Dr Keith Ridge, England’s Chief Pharmaceutical Officer, recognising the positive impact the scheme will have for NHS staff. It was sponsored by HEE with technical leadership and fellowship programme management by the Commonwealth Pharmacist’s Association.
