Extending Independent Nurse Prescribing within NHSScotland
DISPENSING ITEMS AGAINST A NURSE PRESCRIPTION IN
An up-to-date list of all qualified nurse prescribers will need to be kept in the pharmacy. It will be the responsibility of the nurse lead at the Trust to keep this list up to date when circumstances change, e.g. a nurse prescriber leaves his/her post. Pharmacy staff should, if not known, check that the nurse
is a prescriber against the list and that the item prescribed is within the NPEF.
The same process will apply for in-patient, out-patient and discharge prescriptions.
