Thumbs up for independent prescribing

By News Team

Evidence from studies conducted on behalf of the Department of Health by researchers at the universities of Southampton and Keele gives the thumbs up to non-medical prescribing.

Pharmacists who have qualified as independent prescribers, it seems, are able to put their skills to good use provided they have the blessing of their employing trust. Patients do not mind whether a pharmacist or doctor decides which medicines they should be taking.

But with many of these prescribers working in primary care it is important that their skills and experience are retained when primary care trusts cease to exist and their responsibilities are transferred elsewhere.
