Part 7S

Part 7S (Updated 01/03/2021)

For unlicensed and imported medicines not contained within Part 7S of the Drug Tariff, please see the circular and supporting documents below.

Prescriptions should be endorsed both electronically and on paper with the special price, fixed non Part 7S handling charge and any other expenses. We have recently seen a number of items where these endorsements have not been applied electronically. Where this is the case, Practitioner Services will not allocate fees if electronic information is used for payment.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Pharmacy Services Team on 0131 466 3540.

  • PCA(P)(2015)17 - This Circular advises of changes to the Drug Tariff effective for dispensings 1 September 2015 respect of reimbursement of costs borne by community pharmacy contractors when dispensing NHS prescriptions for specialist preparations and imported unlicensed medicines not listed in Part 7S.

Part 7U

Part 7U (Updated 01/03/2021)

After consultation with CPS, the Scottish Government has introduced a new section to the Drug Tariff — Part 7U. See circular  PCA(P)(2013)32 for more details. This new section lists pack sizes and prices for products without a formal marketing authorisation which are available. The new section has been introduced to facilitate transparent reimbursement of the costs of these products. It will also remove any need to seek authorisation from the NHS Board before these products are supplied.

  • No further endorsements will be accepted on Part 7U drugs
  • The products will be subject to generic clawback unless specifically listed as ZD
  • If a product in Part 7U becomes licensed, it will be moved to Part 7
  • Items in Part 7U will also still be subject to pay and report if they currently fall under this grouping
