Developing health visitor prescribing.

Author information



Prescribing is an essential element of the health visitor's role. However, in one inner-city locality prescribing in practice was evaluated to be at a low level. A number of barriers to prescribing were identified through a focus group. A project to support health visitors was planned and delivered. The project involved clinical updates and improvement to the registration process, thereby reducing delays for practitioners in getting prescribing pads. The result was that prescribing confidence improved and prescribing activity increased.
