Course content

We offer an independent prescribing programme for pharmacists.

The programme is run concurrently between the School of Health Sciences and the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, enabling a large degree of multidisciplinary learning.

Practitioners who successfully complete our Non-Medical Prescribing for Pharmacists course are eligible to apply for admission on to the relevant professional register as an independent prescriber.

The programme was developed in response to a stakeholder meeting held with community pharmacy reps, local trusts and Allied Healthcare Professionals (AHP) reps.
