We are pleased to offer this one day event for Non-Medical Prescribers. The lectures will be delivered by Pharmacists and Clinical Nurse Specialists and encourage active audience participation. Delegates should be health care professionals with a Non-Medical Prescribing qualification (v300).

Back in November, we relaunched our NMP Study Day virtually in place of our cancelled event scheduled for March 2020. This was hugely successful with incredible engagement throughout the event and saw over 450 attendees join us from around the world! The feedback post event was fantastic and we are grateful to everyone who took the time to let us know your thoughts.

Based on this, we are committing to delivering these events virtually moving forward. The cost to attend will be £30 per person (previously £90 when held on campus) and this should be paid when booking your ticket on Eventbrite. You will need to liaise with your employer for reimbursement.

Those who attend, and sign-in on the day, will be sent an electronic certificate around a week after the event takes place.

For those who paid for a place at the March 2020 event, please contact us on and we will provide you with a discount code for this event & future study days.
