  • IPP course and finding a DMP

    Good afternoon

    I am a qualified Greek pharmacist working in Glasgow and I want to apply for the Independent Presciber Course for 2021. The problem is that I am relatively new in the area that my pharmacy is and I have not identified a possible GP that could be my Designated Medical Practitioner. I have contacted University of Strathclyde myself to ask them if I could search for a psychiatry consultant ( I want to specialise in mental health and CNS prescribing ) only to hear that my DMP has to be a local GP. Surely, they mujst be great local doctors in my area but unfortunately , they ones that I have worked with so far cannot be identified as tutors.

    Does anyone has any idea how I could find approach that DMP issue?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi,
    just to confirm, are you a registered pharmacist in the UK or not? from what I gather, a lot of uk universities require you to be a pharmacist egistered in the UK and require a minimum of 2 years experience as a registered pharmacist.
    regarding getting hold of a DMP, youd have to approach a bunch of different GP surgeries, ask a colleague who is a prescriber if they are willing to be your DMP or a consultant. regarding who can be a dmp, different universities have different policies, so check their websites. apart from that, i have no idea unless your willing to pay someone

      Hi there
      Thanks for your reply! Yes I've been qualified for nearly 4 years here but most of the times I was a relief pharmacist and had travelled a lot the country but only the past few months i am in my current position. I find it rather difficult to built relationships with the doctors in my area since the receptionists some times seem to be more helpful. I really want to do the course and I find it a little of frustrating that the university wants us to work together with GPS ideally. They didn't mention any other professionals like consultants, other independent prescribers etc
