The full PG Cert programme began in September 2023 when NHS England funded a significant number of places on the PG Cert for staff working in, or delivering services to, the NHS in England.
NHS England expects to continue to commission and to fund places on a Clinical Data Science PG Cert from 2024 onwards. (A commissioning and procurement exercise is shortly to take place.) Further details about funded places on the PG Cert programme for 2024 wil be published here when they are ready. It is highly likely that funded places will be requested and allocated via the METIP commissioning process.
