Survey of non-medical prescribers in acute and community trust

Most non-medical prescribers (NMPs) comply with local and national policies, according to this study, which surveyed NMPs in a trust that operates both an acute district hospital and community services. However, support does need to be put in place at the level of the organisation to ensure safety.
