NPC publishes FAQ list for non-medical prescribing

The National Prescribing Centre (NPC) has published some frequently asked questions and answers about non-medical prescribing on its website. They tackle issues such as the position on controlled drugs (no news as yet on when they necessary changes will be made to allow nurse independent prescribers to prescribe more controlled drugs), using prescription pads in different settings, and what details about a prescriber need to be on the form.
