Let’s talk leveling up as a Pharmacist….have you ever considered becoming an Independent Prescriber (I.P)?
This would mean you could prescribe medication to patients without having a doctor as the middleman! NO MORE staring at prescriptions trying to figure out what Dr. Jones has written down for a customer. The scribble that actually means- paracetamol.
By March 2022 an amount of funded independent prescribers courses will be available for qualified pharmacists. At present a total of 327 courses have been announced to be complete during the first half of 2022.
To qualify you’d need to fall into the below categories:
Being based in England
Working in community pharmacy
Working in primary care but not employed in a primary care network Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme role
Working in health and justice settings
You would need to act promptly as the HEE have specified that this is a ‘first come first served basis, based on a complete application’….so don’t hang about!
It’s time to level up and take the next steps!!
