Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire e-Learning 

Welcome to the Community Pharmacy West Yorkshire e-Learning platform.


We are working with Virtual Outcomes to deliver a series of online training events throughout the year.  The training is free to access and is open to all members of the pharmacy team.  An introduction for Virtual Outcomes can be found here: https://vimeo.com/316124447.

Each module will take around 15-20 minutes to complete.  The contents typically include an introduction to the topic, how it impacts the health of your patients and what you can do to support them.  There is also a link to where you can get nationally available resources for health promotion campaigns. Each month at least one new topic will be released for the whole team to view.  Some of the modules are aimed at Healthy Living Pharmacy Champions, but will be useful for the whole team.  Additional modules will also be provided on key emerging topics like General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

You can access the e-learning modules from a PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone with an internet connection.  You will need your F-code and an email address to register.  Once you have registered you will get an email notification of any new courses.

You will be able to access a certificate for each module completed.

We hope that you will make use of this e-learning platform and that you find it useful. We will review the system this year and decide whether we continue to invest in this on your behalf. Your feedback will be invaluable in developing courses so please let us have any feedback you have.

If you need help logging on to watch the webinar please see the Virtual Outcomes Login Easy Guide.

Locum pharmacists wishing to access Virtuaul Ouctomes e-learning should use the F-code of the West Yorkshire pharmacy you are current working in, or last worked in.
