Around the world countries are introducing nurse independent and supplementary prescribing in response to increased socioeconomic and political demands. The introduction of non-medical prescribing in Jersey has been challenging but worthwhile. Non-medical prescribing, as in other countries, is seen as a safe and effective method of delivering patient care that provides significant cost savings; however, non-medical prescribers' powers and roles differ across the countries that have taken up the practice. This article documents the States of Jersey's journey from commissioning and the implementation of non-medical prescribing, to now.
