This is as part of a funding initiative to develop the role of pharmacists in the emergency department and in urgent care. Applications from pharmacists working in emergency medicine based in acute medical areas, walk in centres or GP out-of-hours, may also be eligible for funding for the course. In addition, there is some additional funding available for organisations to backfill for students' time for undertaking either course.
Students working outside of the north-west will be self-funding and ineligible for tuition fees or backfill paid by Health Education North West.
