Results are presented from an audit of mental health nurses (MHNs) who have undertaken training in order to practise as supplementary prescribers as part of an evaluation of the development of non-medical prescribing (NMP) across South West Yorkshire Mental Health Trust (SWYMHT). Quantitative (demographics) and qualitative (open-ended statements) results derived from a questionnaire survey are analysed and compared to the national picture. Implications for the governance arrangements which need to be in place for the further development of non-medical prescribing in mental health care, both for the Trust and nationally, are suggested.
