"I enjoyed studying in Reading's Centre for Inter-Professional Postgraduate Education and Training because I learnt from specialists with a passion for their area. What I learnt was extremely relevant and I could go and apply it to a real patient the very next day."
Train to become an independent and supplementary prescriber in our Non-Medical Prescribing postgraduate programme, where you will learn in accordance with the standards set by the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) or the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC).
