Course summary

Description:

Pharmacists are increasingly recognised as core providers of services relating to medicines use, disease management and health promotion. Our part-time postgraduate Pharmacy Practice course, designed specifically for qualified pharmacists working in community, primary care or general practice, will provide students with excellent clinical knowledge and consultation skills.

On completion of the course, students will be able to confidently deliver safe, efficient and effective patient care that meets the health needs of their local population. Students will also develop their knowledge and understanding of health beliefs and adherence, public health policy and strategic service development. They will be supported to engage effectively with commissioning groups, develop partnerships with GPs and implement successful pharmacy services that respond to the needs of patients and commissioners.

The course is modular, allowing students to undertake modules according to personal interests, CPD requirements or service development needs. In combination, completion of modules leads to the award of an academic qualification. Most students continue to work full time in addition to attending the course.

Career prospects:

We will equip you to deliver pharmacy services in the community to a high standard, in line with the demands of the changing NHS. You may also be able to move into the provision of pharmaceutical and prescribing advice in primary care.
