Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

The Non-Medical prescribing qualification at Swansea University is available through a stand alone 40 credit module - Non-Medical prescribing (GPhC) SHGM22(approved by the GPhC) or by doing a Post Graduate Certificate in Non-Medical prescribing.

The Post Graduate Certificate combines the stand-alone module (SHGM22) with an additional pharmacology module (20 credits) to comprise the Post Graduate Certificate. Some pharmacists might choose this option if they have not studied for some time or if they wish to gain an additional academic qualification.

From the Non-Medical Prescribing qualification you will gain the knowledge and skills needed to prescribe safely and appropriately within your area of practice.

The standalone module or the PGCert will equip you with the competency to practise within current legislation as an independent Non-Medical prescriber.
