Course Summary

Tailored to the requirements of clinically experienced pharmacists, our Independent Prescribing course will help you to become a competent prescriber.

Our multidisciplinary teaching team is comprised of practicing clinical and prescribing pharmacists, doctors and nurses. The four-month, part-time course includes 12 days in clinical practice under the supervision of a designated medical practitioner (DMP). You’ll also benefit from 13 study days with associated pre-study day activities, which you can adapt to your own needs. Working with a DMP, you’ll get to grips with the required skills in examination and diagnostics for you to perform in a prescribing role, and to pursue competency in these areas. The course also covers advanced consultation skills, clinical decision-making, law and ethics, and public health.

Complete your course successfully and you’ll be eligible for the annotation of ‘Independent Prescriber’ on the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) Register of Pharmacists.
