GP locums can work in up to 40 different practices a year. As practice prescribing systems vary, if locums have agreed to sign prescriptions generated by others, it is essential that they are clear about how the practice prescribing system works so they can make safe prescribing decisions.
This template helps practices explain the steps in their prescribing systems so that visiting GPs can make informed, safe prescribing decisions.
We’re the independent not-for-profit support organisation run by and for any GP in the UK working as a locum or salaried GP. Please support our work by joining us as a full member, from only £11 per month, and includes full use of LocumDeck.
