  • Supply of NRT to pregnant women

    The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a clarification on directly supplying nicotine replacement therapy (NRT): “Supply of these products by non-medically qualified staff is permitted in medicines legislation. This is subject to the products being pre-packed and supplied from lockable premises.”

    This means that whilst staff who are not clinically registered can provide a direct supply of NRT, unfortunately they can’t do it in people’s homes. This briefing gives further guidance.
