Prescribing in General Practice

Updated on Friday, 4 May 2018, 1021 views

This guidance was put together by the Clinical and Prescribing subcommittee to meet the increasing demand from individuals and organisafor information relating to prescribing in general practice.  Doctors have specific clinical rights and responsibilities in relation to prescribing, and as most general practitioners work within the NHS, they are also bound by the NHS regulatory system.

 

It was updated in April 2018 to include a link to the template letters relating to the new requirements on hospitals to reduce inappropriate bureaucratic workload shift, in the Q&A section Can my GP refuse to give me a prescription that my consultant asked them to provide? (page 9)

There are also some amendments to the prescribing numbers, independent prescriber and private prescriptions sections.
