Prescriber code requirement

New requirement for Prescriber Codes on NHS Prescriptions

The changes to the NHS have made it even more important for the Prescription Pricing Authority (NHS BSA) to identify where to charge prescription costs to when it prices prescriptions. Therefore, from 1st April, there is a new requirement to ensure prescriptions contain a prescriber code.

Failure to do this may result in the return of prescriptions and delayed payment.
