‘Preparing to Prescribe’ an online implementation tool kit for non-medical prescribers

I am pleased to advise that ‘Preparing to Prescribe’, online implementation tool kit has been updated and is now hosted on a different website and can be accessed by clicking on the logo below:

Over 700 people have visited the tool kit, and we have received some very positive feedback from NMP course providers, NMP leads and healthcare professionals.

‘..a useful addition to the pre course information that can be accessed by our potential students.. we have added weblink to the tool kit on the admissions page for our prescribing programme’  (HEI lead)

 ‘potential applicants asked complete it before I arrange this initial visit., answer queries and saves time, when applicants complete the toolkit and realise they do not meet one of the basic entry criteria’ (NMP lead)

 ‘ the best part  was the link to the example maths questions as it’s been a while since I have done maths and it was good to see what level I would need. I also liked the part at the beginning that made sure that you fitted the criteria by going through it step by step’ (AHP)

We hope that you continue to find it a useful resource and continue to direct future potential NMP applicants to using it as part of their application process,  and would be grateful if you could forward it on to relevant contacts.

Please let me know if you have any ideas or contacts who may also be interested in using this resource.

If you have any questions about the toolkit and or  feedback on its’ content please contact me @  n.carey@surrey.ac.uk

Kind regards
