Course description

The NHS spent more than £13 billion on medicines in 2012 and experts believe that more than 50% of all medication is prescribed, dispensed or sold inappropriately every single year. Furthermore, half of all patients in the UKfail to take their medication correctly. These facts can often lead to disastrous consequences, especially when medication ends up in the wrong hands.

By completing this course, you will not only gain a nationally recognised qualification, but will develop and improve your knowledge and skills in the handling of medication in health and social care.

This qualification is ideal for anyone who works in the healthcare sector or anyone who wishes to work in this  sector in the future. The qualification is also suitable for anyone who handles medication while in a caring role.
