• SHPA’s COVID-19 Hospital Pharmacy Relief: Introductory Training
    is a condensed program of learning designed to ensure as many practitioners as possible are as prepared as possible for potential deployment to relieve hospital staffing shortages. 
     

    Signing up to the Relief Register and/or completion of the associated Introductory Training does not mean you will be required for hospital relief work, as this will be coordinated based on location and skills mix of the hospitals requiring additional support.
