NPC legacy site
Although no new Medicines and prescribing content will be published to the NPC legacy website, the extensive catalogue of existing publications, resources and e-learning materials will still be available to view and download for as long as the information contained within them remains accurate and up-to-date. All future Medicines and prescribing outputs will be published on the NICE website and signposted from the Medicines and prescribing homepage.

Find out more information about the ‘self-administration of medicines’ and learn more about the levels of supervision for self-administration of medicines, the benefits, the barriers, and what considerations are needed for setting up self-administration of medicines in hospital plus lots more by using the eLearning materials section and/or the other useful links and resources available on the left-hand side menu.
