We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
In 2006 legislation was passed that permitted appropriately qualified pharmacists to assume the role of Independent Prescriber. This was an extension of prescribing rights from the initial supplementary prescribing role that many pharmacists had been fulfilling since 2004.
Pharmacists who wish to take on the prescribing role must complete an education programme that fulfils the requirements stipulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC).
Our preparatory course for pharmacist independent prescribers provides 60 Masters level academic credits. On successful completion of the course you will be eligible to register with the GPhC to carry out an Independent Prescribing and/or Supplementary Prescribing role; and will also be awarded the Certificate in Prescribing Studies
