Dispensing Assistant Programme

There is a number of discounted training programmes available to Alphega Pharmacy members. One of our most popular courses, offered by our training partner Scientia Skills, is the Dispensing Assistant Programme.

Any team member working in the dispensary must be enrolled in a training course which covers the roles they perform, and meets the requirements of the GPhC, within three months of them starting.

The GPhC accredited training programme consists of three workbooks:

  • Working in the dispensary
  • Dispensing prescriptions
  • Managing dispensary stock

Workbooks feature activities, self-check questions with answers, checklists to monitor progress and a 40 minute multiple choice test.

You can choose to order a hard copy pack, with either paper or online tests, or you can download PDFs with online tests for your trainee.

Tutor and trainee guides are also included.
