Practitioners on this programme are employees or self-employed within health and social care organisations across a diverse range of settings. The programme offers structured professional development for expanding scope of practice within already challenging roles, enabling you to achieve professional qualifications and professional recognition.

The acquisition of the Integrated Urgent Care certificate particularly enhances employment opportunities in the areas of NHS111, Integrated care services, Urgent Care Centres, Urgent Treatment Centres, General Practice (especially if providing out of hours services), and any job role which includes remote consultation.

Personal Academic Tutors will focus on how the learning from the programme is directly related to employability and ongoing career development. The use of personal development planning and mapping against career frameworks helps learners explore and identify a range of potential career directions.

If you are planning to pursue further study, this course enables you to enrol onto the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinically Enhanced Integrated Urgent Care Practice, where you could undertake non-medical prescribing or other clinical modules to gain the Diploma award.

The Integrated Care Practice programme is distinct from a Masters in Advanced Clinical Practice, and there is an opportunity to progress to this type of programme and continue expanding clinical competence and scope of practice.
