Some medications are only prescribed by your GP if they have been started by a specialst and an agreement is reached between the two regarding shared responsibilities.

The documents below outline possible shared responsibilities for some types of medicine.

It is important to remember that any Doctor or Non-medical Prescriber can only prescribe what they feel clinically competent to. It is down to their discretion whether they agree to shared care and take on prescribing.
