Abstract

Clinical Pharmacy became established in the UK in the early 1980s and the early pioneers formed the UK Clinical Pharmacy Association (UKCPA) in 1981. At this time, undergraduate Pharmacy degrees did not prepare graduates to practice clinical pharmacy and this led to Pharmacy NHS leaders co-operating with universities to develop postgraduate degrees in Clinical Pharmacy. Graduates from these degrees were then able to contribute to the planning and implementation of clinical pharmacy services and formulary management as recommended by government circulars in the late 1980s.
