Non Medical Prescribers

The documents is this section will  inform Practice Managers of the actions they need to take when
a Non Medical Prescriber (NMP) joins or leaves the practice.

NMPs include nurses, midwives, pharmacists, physiotherapists, podiatrists,
radiographers and optometrists who have a registered independent prescribing qualification.

The majority of NMPs currently employed in GP practices are nurses but some practices are now
directly employing pharmacists and physiotherapists who have a prescribing qualification and to
whom this notification also applies.
