  • Law questions thread

    Got a lot of law questions so will ask in this thread only. I would appreciate it if people could quickly explain some of my doubts.

    Firstly, what is SI? I have a definition of a vet medicine from the SI.

    2. I have legal classes of vet medicines and one of them is NFA-VPS (PML) - non- food producing animal vet, pharmacist, sqp?

    What is a non food producing animal vet and sqp?

        NFA-VPS stands for non-food producing animal - veterinarian, pharmacist, suitably qualified person (sqp)
        Any vet medicinal product in this category can be supplied by either a registered vet surgeon or a registered pharmacist. A product will be in this category if it is indicated for use in non-food animals (hence the name)

          yeah MEP is really useful, just reading that. There is contradiction about repeats within my notes and mep though. It says in the MEP, '' in the case of a repeatable prescription that does not specify the number of times it may be dispensed, it shall not be dispensed on more than 2 occasions. (i.e. the prescription may only be dispensed once).

          However my notes say it can be repeated if stated, however many times as script states.

          Also what is MOD ACT?

              There is no contradiction - if it says "repeat" but doesn't state how many then you can dispense it twice - one normal dispensing and then one repeat (as mep states).

              If it does say how many repeats, ie. repeat 3 times, you can repeat it 3 times (as your notes state).

                right got it thanks pinkglitter.

                Another qu: What is the point of giving a POM prescription as a private or NHS. Can they not all be written in the same format. e.g. either as NHS or as private?

                  let's say you move to another city, still did not register with a GP and needed some medicines for any reason. you go to a private GP clinic and he issues a private script for you ( usually white script).
                  NHS has different format than private scripts. even NHS scripts have different color and requirement i.e dentists scripts are yellow, Drug Mis-use instalment prescription are blue...etc

                    Re: Law questions thread

                    Also some medicines aren't allowed to be prescribed on NHS, e.g malaria prophylaxis so you have to get a private script and pay for the cost of the medicine as it's not fair on the NHS to fork out cos people want to go travelling

                      However treatment is free when you return from your travels.

                        Don't for get EU or Swiss scripts are treated as private scripts.
                        However you need to be sure of the bona-fides of the prescriber.

                          It says for vet medicines: products not dispensed under the cascade do not legally need to be labelled.
