Independent prescribing courses for community pharmacists

Health Education England is offering more independent prescribing courses from March 2023 for community pharmacists, including locums.

This training enables pharmacists to support patients from diagnosis to prescribing, and to provide advice and follow-up – while also helping them to feel confident and prepared for the new challenges of their role.

Courses will be available between April 2023 and March 2024, with several universities offering multiple dates for cohort intakes. Start dates will depend on the university provider.
