Independent Prescribers courses available before March 2022

We  want to bring your attention to the information below regarding access to IP courses available before March 2022, including at Plymouth University.

As you will be aware Within the Pharmacy Integration Fund there is an initiative focussed on training existing community pharmacists to become qualified as a prescriber, the intake for this starts later this year.

In the short term however there is an opportunity to get on a prescriber course now. You will need to have identified a DMP or DPP (a training mentor in effect).  As this is the most difficult part of the process we are highlighting this need to practices and hopefully we may be able to offer some links to willing GPs / Pharmacists although this is by no means guaranteed.  We would encourage you to use local relationships to find an appropriate individual.  Details of how to apply are available here.
