New Independent Prescribing (IP) supervision resource for prospective Designated Prescribing Practitioners (DPPs), employers and system leaders

NHS England are pleased to announce a new multi-professional resource for clinicians considering becoming a DPP and employers and system leaders aiming to support DPP capacity in their workforce, particularly the pharmacy workforce.

The resource consists of a suite of web pages, frameworks, real-life examples and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). It also includes information for prospective DPPs from professions other than pharmacy, wishing to support a pharmacist IP learner.

The resource aims to reduce barriers to the DPP role by ensuring those eligible understand the role, its expectations and where to find advice and training. This could contribute to an increase in DPP and Independent Prescribing capacity across all sectors, particularly pharmacy primary care settings, including community pharmacies.
