Description

The pharmacy contractor will stock the agreed range of specialist TB medicines and will make a commitment to ensure that users of this service have prompt access to these medicines during core and supplementary hours as agreed. All non-standard regimens will be considered with the pharmacy contactor on a case by case basis. Where contractors have stocked TB medicines and have not been required to offer this service, the cost of up to one unopened pack per annum per TB item may be claimed. The empty box with expiry date intact, backed up with a copy of the original invoice must be supplied with the claim.

The pharmacy will provide information and advice to the user, carer and clinician. They may also refer to specialist centres, support groups or other health and social care professionals where appropriate.

Please note, this service is now complete.
