Help and guidance for community pharmacy contractors towards becoming IPs.

Have you thought about becoming an Independent Prescriber?


Pharmacy is changing, and the natural direction is for community pharmacy to be a more clinical service in the future. Our vision is to see prescribing pharmacists in community pharmacies and GP practices. We firmly believe that using the combined power of both community pharmacy and GP practices, prescribing pharmacists WORKING IN THE COMMUNITY can provide patients with considerable benefits in healthcare.

We have an independent prescriber in our staff profile to support your development in becoming a prescriber. We also work with various other organisations to provide you with more advanced training and protocols to help you set up your clinics based on your level of competence.

Independent prescribing can provide a wealth of opportunities to community pharmacists and their patients by using knowledge and skills in a more clinical context. The direction of travel is obvious, and we have been saying this for years – the path is CLINICAL SERVICES.

Let us remove that pressure and help you become the best at what you are – a clinical prescribing pharmacist!
