With an increasing role of independent prescribers in the healthcare model and NHS workforce, the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) have collaborated
with the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) to produce a support guidance for Pharmacist,
Nurse and Midwife independent prescribers.
The guidance aims to support those aspiring to become independent prescribers, providing practical guidance on overcoming challenges such as finding a designated medical practitioner (DMP) and understanding the role of independent prescribers to a greater extent. This guidance can also be used as a support tool for those training to be an independent prescriber, supporting with resources to develop and build on your competencies and knowledge as a prescriber.
