PSNC Briefing 008/15: Directions of Prescriptions (February 2015)

Prescription direction should not take place. Patients must be allowed a free choice between any community pharmacy. The patients are entitled to take decisions about where they want their prescriptions to be dispensed; therefore, if a patient prefers to use a particular pharmacy, the NHS Constitution requires that this preference is respected.

This briefing explains what GP practitioners and pharmacists must and must not do.
