Important Announcements Regarding CPD

We have two important announcements to make regarding the CPD portal.
Please see below.

23/24 Submissions – Ignore the Countdown Clock Graphic

As announced on Friday 24th May, due to unplanned and unavoidable episodes of disruption of registrant access to the CPD portal, the Pharmaceutical Society NI has agreed to extend the deadline for submissions by 1 week.

The deadline for submissions will be 11:59pm on Friday 7 June 2024.

However, when you log into the portal to work on your submissions you will see a countdown clock that still states that the deadline is this Friday (31st May 2024).

Please ignore this countdown. We were unable to remove this clock graphic without further disruptions to your access to the portal.

Rest assured that it is simply an animated graphic, and will in no way affect your access to submitting your CPD cycles right up until the new deadline.

Slight delay in opening of 2024/25 CPD cycle

We know that some of you like to get started with recording CPD cycles as soon as each new submission year starts.

This year (CPD Year 2024/25), because of improvements that we are making to the CPD portal, there will be a necessary delay in your access to the portal.

These improvements have been informed by focus groups of pharmacists, facilitated in conjunction with our web developers, Fortesium.

This is to ensure that you will get the best possible user experience when you begin to record your 2024/25 cycles.

Please do not start to record any 2024/25 cycles on the CPD portal until we notify you that the portal is ready.

Any work you do on your 2024/25 submission before we give the go-ahead may result in irrecoverable loss of your effort.

If you have set aside time in early June to record CPD cycles, we suggest that you write up your work on a Word document, so that you can copy and paste it into the CPD portal once the new system goes live.

Once the new system is up and running, we are confident that all registrants will find it easier to work on your submissions.

Thank you for your patience.
