Remote prescribing by Doctors

15th July

A new statement has been announced by the GMC to clarify the issue on remote prescribing:

You must undertake a physical examination of patients before prescribing non-surgical cosmetic medicinal products such as Botox, Dysport or Vistabel or other injectable cosmetic medicines. You must not therefore prescribe these medicines by telephone, fax, video-link, or online.

To see the full statement, which comes into effect on the 23rd July 2012, click here.
