  • Course description
    Medicines management describes a system of processes and behaviours that determines how medicines are used by patients and the NHS. Effective medicines management places the patient as the primary focus of interventions by health care professionals and is a key driver for NHS modernisation in the UK.

    The programme is delivered by distance learning supported by compulsory contact days, and this means it is very flexible in nature. Students can start at any stage throughout the year and are able to negotiate a personal timetable for submission of assessment with the programme tutors. The courses are fully supported by experienced pharmacists, many of whom have a continuing clinical or management role within the NHS.
