  • FP10 Scripts for Zoladex Inj and Epipen Inj

    Do we lose money when we dispense FP10 scripts for Zoladex Injection and Epipen Injection (not jnr)? Wholesalers (Uni) do not give a discount on these lines and they are not in Part 2 of the drug tariff 'drugs for which discount is not deducted' list The answer may be common knowledge but I have just woken up!!!!!!!!!!!!. How many other products such as these are there? What do my colleagues do?. Refuse to dispense these scripts?

    You cannot refuse to dispense such items:
    "Can I refuse to dispense a medicine that I do not receive discount in obtaining and which is not on the Zero Discount List?

    Pharmacy contractors, through their Terms of Service, are obliged to dispensed all medicines ordered with reasonable promptness, regardless of whether discount is received when obtaining a product (The National Health Service (Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2005. Schedule 1; Part 2;5.(2)(b)). "

    I believe you should be able to argue the case for Zoladex to be added to the new-fangled version of the "ZD list", if indeed neither Unichem nor AAH give discount on it; see the PSNC page mentioned above to find out how. Good luck!

      Keep copies of the prescription in case they do add it to the list, perhaps?
