In the past only doctors could prescribe medicines. Recently a number of changes have been made to the prescribing laws which allow health professionals (nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists) to prescribe medicines in their specialist area following a period of extended training.
The overall aim of non medical prescribing is to improve patient access to medicines and as a result improve NHS services.
