Dear Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Please could you supply any information you have regarding the trust's policy on non-registered staff (eg. ambulance technicians) using non-parenteral Prescription only medications such as salbutamol?

Does the trust have a legal framework or policy that describes the legal mechanism for this under the Human medicines regulations 2012?

Has there ever been any feedback given or action taken by the MHRA or CQC in relation to use of salbutamol or ipratropium bromide by ambulance technicians?

If the trust has a medicines policy or medicines governance policy, please could you share this?

Yours faithfully,

D_wilson
