CPD Apply Important Information

We have just been informed by The University of Chester that they have reached their ceiling for CPD apply applications for this financial year. Funding has been reduced by 50 % from Health Education England (HEE) for this year so reached capacity very quickly.


They are unable to approve new applications. The University of Chester are considering applications that have been signed off by the trust and will be contacting the individuals to let them know if they have been successful or not.


All other applications e.g. waiting for manager or CPD approval in the CPD Apply on line system will not be approved by the University, if you are unsure about the status of the applications, please contact Carolyn Sanderson, contact details below.




1. There is space on some modules for staff to attend at Chester, if the place is funded from individuals or individual budget holders. If you are able to fund places please contact Katherine Smith kathryn.smith@chester.ac.uk to apply through a stand-alone application form


2. There are still places for various modules at other Universities within the region all can be viewed at www.cpd-applynw.nhs.uk
e.g. The University of Liverpool shows 60% of modules available today


3. We have asked Liverpool John Moore’s university if they can deliver the Non-medical prescribing and mentorship in practice modules here at the Countess and we are awaiting a reply.
