GDC reminds registrants about remote prescribing restrictions
Following a recent announcement by the General Medical Council that doctors are to be banned from prescribing Botox remotely, the General Dental Council (GDC) is reminding its registrants that guidance on this was issued last year.
The GDC already states that remote prescribing shall not be used in the provision of non-surgical cosmetic procedures such as the prescription or administration of Botox or injectable cosmetic
The GDC guidance was issued in response to concerns that registrants may use remote prescribing inappropriately and to achieve consistency with the approach of other healthcare regulators in this area.
The guidance can be found on the GDC website at www.gdc-uk.org
