The National Substance Misuse Non-Medical Prescribing Forum or NSMNMPF welcomes applications from all nurses and pharmacists who are qualified or trainee Non-Medical Prescribers (NMPs) who are working with people experiencing substance use disorders and related problems. 

Associate membership is available to managers, doctors, academics and others who have an interest in Non-Medical prescribing in substance misuse. 

Joining the NMP forum is free, but some events are sponsored or part-sponsored by different organisations including healthcare providers, universities, not-for profit organisations and the pharmaceutical industry.

The NMP forum is hosted on the SMMGP website. 

Aims and objectives of the NSMNMP forum are to:

  • improve patient safety by increasing access to specialist prescribing in the treatment of people with substance use disorders.
  • provide a forum where non-medical prescribers can exchange experiences and share and disseminate good practice, to explore problems and challenges and enable peer support and extend professional networks.
  • contribute to the continued professional development of its members via educational presentations and facilitating peer learning by discussion and reflection.
  • Provide a forum for consultation on documents and concepts pertaining to the development of non-medical prescribing in the substance misuse field.
  • influence policy makers and other professional organisations to promote nonmedical prescribing in the substance misuse field.
