Who is a Valid Prescriber:

Guidance from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), an executive agency of the Department of Health, states that only "appropriate practitioners" can prescribe medicine in the UK. Appropriate practitioners can be:

  • independent prescribers
  • supplementary prescribers

A prescriber is a healthcare professional who can write a prescription. This applies to both NHS prescriptions and private prescriptions.

Independent prescribers

Independent prescribers are healthcare professionals who are responsible for:

  • assessing your health
  • making clinical decisions about how to manage your condition, including prescribing medication

Independent practitioners include:

  • doctors, such as your GP or a hospital doctor
  • dentists, who may prescribe medication to treat a condition affecting your teeth
  • nurse independent prescribers, who can prescribe any medicine for any medical condition within their competence, including some controlled medicines (those that are controlled under the Misuse of Drugs legislation) for specific medical conditions
  • pharmacist independent prescribers, who can prescribe any medicine for any medical condition within their competence, except for controlled medicines
  • optometrist independent prescribers, who can prescribe any licensed medicine for conditions that affect the eye and surrounding tissue, but cannot prescribe any controlled medicines independently

Supplementary prescribers

Supplementary prescribers are responsible for continuing your care after an independent prescriber has assessed your health. They work with the independent prescriber to fulfil a clinical management plan agreed between the prescribers and you.

Supplementary prescribers include:

  • nurses
  • pharmacists
  • podiatrists (foot care specialists)
  • physiotherapists (healthcare professionals who use physical techniques, such as massage and manipulation, to promote healing)
  • diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers (specialists in using medical imaging techniques, such as X-rays)
  • optometrists (healthcare professionals who examine eyes, test sight and prescribe and dispense glasses and contact lenses)

A supplementary prescriber can prescribe any medicine, including controlled medicines, for any condition within their competence under the agreed clinical management plan.

For example, your GP (an independent prescriber) may assess a condition such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and refer you to a specialist physiotherapist (a supplementary prescriber) to manage your long-term care. Your physiotherapist will be able to prescribe medicines, such as inhalers, under your clinical management plan.
