Request to use non-medical Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPPs) as part of a GPhC approved course

Please complete the below submission template should you wish to use non-medical Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPPs) as part of your GPhC approved course. This submission template is intended to be used by providers who are accredited to the pre-2019 standards and who wish to use non-medical DPPs. Course providers who have already been accredited to the 2019 standards, but who were asked to resubmit their non-medical DPP application to the GPhC, should also complete this submission template.

Please note, course providers who have a planned GPhC reaccreditation event scheduled for 2019/20 should not use this template and should complete the independent prescribing re/accreditation submission template, 2019-20 (found above), as part of their reaccreditation process.
