Non-Medical Prescribing Selection Process

11th March, 2021

Please complete the information requested on this page to express your interest in undertaking the NMP course in the next academic year 2021/22 (One form per person please)

Please show your DMP this document and get agreement from them before your complete this form. DMP do not need to be Medical practitioners but will need to have undertaken the relevant training to undertake this role.

This year Non medical prescribing course places have not been commissioned for primary care by HEE. We therefore need to know what staff are suitably qualified and need to access this course for this next academic year September 2021/22.

The way funding for these modules is allocated has also changed, there is now HEE allocated CPD money for registered Nurses and Health Care Practitioners (excluding Pharmacists and those working for OOH or 111) working in Primary Care, this is £1000 over 3 years. If you have accessed a HEE funded module this year 20/21 then this will have been deducted from your CPD allowance.

For staff wishing to undertake this course there will be a cost of @£2000 the actual cost has not been disclosed by any of the universities yet, but we have been informed it is likely to be in this region. For those who do have CPD money this can be used towards the course up to your £1000 limit, meaning that practices will have to make up the shortfall. The training hub are working with the universities identify available training places, these may be with UWE, Plymouth or Exeter Universities.

The need for you to undertake this course should be on your professional development plan and the Practice development plan, this should in turn inform the PCN training plan.

If you are working at or towards an advanced level of practice you will undertake this course at level 7, Masters Level.

Paramedics please ensure you have read the Independent Prescribing and Paramedics FAQs prior to applying
