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).

This event was planned for March but due to Covid-19, we had to postpone it. Due to the ongoing restrictions with large gatherings & events, we decided to reschedule this event virtually in order to assist with the continued learning of those who attend our study days.  We will be using Zoom Webinar for the event.

The event is completely free to attend for all & we will provide an electronic certificate to those who  sign in on Zoom on the day of the event.

For those who paid for a place at the March event, you will still be given a free place at the next NMP Study Day we host on campus. This is not in place of that event.

Our Non-Medical Prescribing Study Days usually take place just once a year in March. Due to Covid-19, this may be pushed back to later in 2021 but we will keep you informed.
