You chose to give the prescription to Mrs Weir.
- Should you have checked with her daughter to ensure that was OK?
- Would it depend on what the prescription was for?
On checking the prescription before it is handed out, you notice that as well as her blood pressure tablets, there is also a prescription for emergency contraception and treatment for an STI.
Would you now phone Mrs Weir’s daughter to ensure that she is happy for you to give all of the items to her mother?
