Abstract: <p class="results">The Government has again promised to end the confusion over the range and use of controlled drugs by non-medical prescribers (NMPs). A recent written answer suggests that regulations allowing district nurses who are NMPs to prescribe the full range of controlled drugs will be in place by the end of October 2011. This is the third time successive governments have made such a commitment, and until it is confirmed district nurses who are independent nurse prescribers must limit their use of controlled drugs to those set out in the British National Formulary and Drug Tariff. This article sets out the limitations on an independent nurse prescriber's right to prescribe controlled drugs under current legislation.</p>
