Nurse independent prescriber qualification has had little overall impact on prescribing


" In my area, the patient is at the heart of everything we do." As it is in ours - we have taken the view that our patients benefit more from seeing a general practitioner with a broader skillset, the ability to deal with anything that walks through the door (both therapeutically and diagnostically) and experience of prescribing rather than someone who is limited to a disease area or minor illness. If your system works for you that's great - we're happy with ours.
