Registration and applications for the next two NHS PgCert-HC cohorts (#6 & #7) opened on Tuesday 27 November 2018.  Both will run in 2019 and are part of a four-cohort commitment by NHS Improvement (NHSI) and NHS England (NHSE) over the next two years (2019-2020).

“Good communications and engagement is at the heart of how the NHS engages with patients, public, communities and our staff,” explains NHSI’s head of communications development, Alison Brown.  “If you aspire to leadership in NHS communications and engagement, this bespoke NHS Postgraduate Certificate in Health Communications can help prepare you to achieve your ambition. It aims to develop both strong practitioners and future leaders.”

Further information on the PgCert-HC and its content and scope is available on: CHCR’s professional development pages, including registration;  and the CHCR e-learning portal.
