Many nurses hold a dual independent prescribing and supplementary prescribing qualification.

Nurse supplementary prescribers can prescribe any medicine which could be prescribed by an NHS doctor including controlled drugs and unlicensed medicines as agreed by the patient and the doctor as part of a patient?s clinical management plan.

They can also prescribe any appliance or chemical reagent listed in the Drug Tariff.
