Hints and Tips Issue 50 (Jan 23) contains information on dispensing appliances and avoiding disallowed items. There is also an opportunity to get involved in Drug Tariff development, by emailing [email protected].
Appliances: Appliances listed in Part IXA should only be prescribed by brand or endorsed with a Tariff listed branded appliance. Any unendorsed submissions will be referred back. Items endorsed with a brand not listed in Part IXA of the Tariff will be returned as disallowed.
Disallowed items. NHS BSA has published a guide to avoiding disallowed items. This may occur when a community nurse prescriber prescribes items which are not listed in their drug formulary or which are not listed in Part IX of the Drug Tariff.
