The PGCert in Non-Medical Prescribing aims to prepare pharmacists to practice within current non-medical prescribing legislation. It will provide the pharmacist with the knowledge and skills to prescribe safely and appropriately within their area of practice. The non-medical prescribing qualification annotated by the General Pharmaceutical Healthcare Council can be achieved by successful completion of a stand-alone 40 credit module, ‘Non-medical prescribing’ - SHGM22. Students wishing to complete the full PGCert in Non-Medical Prescribing for Pharmacists must also complete an optional 20 credit module, Pharmacology principles and practice (NMC) SHGM23.
There will be two cohorts per year starting in March and September. The Spring cohort will run every Wednesday from March to November (No lectures during August) and the Autumn cohort will be taught every Tuesday from September to the following March.
Unfortunately this course is not available to international students.
