Non Medical Prescribing Policy

This Policy sets out the framework for the management of non-medical prescribing throughout the Trust. It should be read in conjunction with other medicines related policies including the Medicines Code, Trust Formulary and Prescription Security Policy. The Policy has been produced to support the ongoing strategic development for non-medical prescribing within the Trust and will underpin and support the Trust’s commitment to:

    • Developing appropriate workforce planning of non-medical prescribing to meet the needs of service users and the services they access
    • Maintaining high standards of governance and risk management processes
    • Implementing robust systems for selection of Trust employees to prepare and train as non-medical prescribers (NMPs)
    • Developing robust, fair and consistent processes for selection and placement of competent NMPs to appropriate posts
    • Ensuring systems and processes for assessing and supporting ongoing prescribing competence
