Botulinum toxins are prescription-only and must be prescribed for the patient before they can be administered. Non-prescribers can buddy up with local prescribers or use a prescriber service. Non-prescribing nurses who complete the required training are permitted to administer Botox and dermal fillers without a prescriber present for the procedure.

Nurses, midwives, and other HCPC professionals can gain prescribing rights by completing the V300 course.
