Course Overview

Independent Prescribing (IP) is becoming an essential skill for pharmacists, to enhance their existing role or to act as a catalyst for role change.

Keele University was the first UK University accredited to provide prescribing courses for pharmacists in 2003. The dedicated IP Team continues to develop the curriculum to ensure that students meet the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) learning outcomes and are appropriately prepared for their future prescribing practice.
