The Allied Health Professionals Prescribing and Medicines Supply Mechanisms Scoping Project recommended further work be undertaken to take forward independent prescribing by physiotherapists and podiatrists. The two engagement exercises are seeking views on the development of independent prescribing for physiotherapists and for podiatrists.
Depending on the outcome, and subject to agreement by Ministers, these views may then inform and assist the development of a formal public consultation led by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) proposing specific amendments to the relevant legislation.
Responses can be made by email or in writing and are welcomed from individuals, groups and organisations.
Closing date for responses is Friday 26 November 2010.
