The Drug Tariff outlines:
- What will be paid to pharmacy contractors for NHS services provided either for reimbursement (the cost of the drugs, appliances etc which you have supplied against an NHS prescription form) or for remuneration (what you are paid as part of your dispensing contract with your local health trust for fees/allowances etc)
- The rules to follow when dispensing
- The value of the fees and allowances you will be paid
- The drug and appliance prices you will be paid.
NHS Prescription Services produces the Drug Tariff on a monthly basis on behalf of the Department of Health. It is supplied primarily to pharmacists and doctors surgeries.
