Entry Criteria

Entry to the curriculum will depend on recognised qualifications incorporating Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology, as well as practical massage or other suitable Bodywork experience. An up to date First Aid qualification will also be a pre-requisite to entry, as will membership of a professional body.

Applicants from a variety of backgrounds may therefore be eligible for entry.

If you have questions on the entry criteria, or whether you are eligible, please contact admin@iriscancerpartnership.org.uk
