The Royal Pharmaceutical Society has published this professional guidance for the specials. This is an update of the resource first published in 2011 by the National Prescribing Centre. In 2011 the National Prescribing Centre became part of the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE). The Royal Pharmaceutical Society is updating the guidance in agreement with NICE and the intention is that the RPS will maintain the guidance in the future.
