What attendees will learn TEST
By the end of this course you will have achieved an understanding of: What the Drug Tariff is, a full explanation of how it affects dispensing doctor remuneration and which parts are relevant to dispensing doctors. Using the online and paper version of the Drug Tariff and NHSBSA updates.
As part of your CPD a useful exercise would be to look in the previous three months’ Drug Tariffs and compile a list of all medical devices which have been deleted and when. You can use this as part of your CPD for the current year. You should write up your findings and reflect on how deletions of medical devices could [or should?] affect your purchasing SOPs.
We would recommend that someone in the dispensary, or perhaps this is a shared task, keeps a track on appliances which are due to be deleted from the Drug Tariff. A list can be produced on a rolling basis in order that the dispensary manager can plan stock ordering properly and to run down any excess stock ahead of the planned month of deletion.
Who should attend:
GP’s, Practice & Dispensary Managers and Dispensary staff
