Drug Tariff Appliance Watch: Notice of Deletion

Drug Tariff Appliance Watch: Notice of Deletion

Where an appliance is due to be deleted from Part IX of the Drug Tariff (DT), a three-month period of notice is issued by the NHS Business Service Authority (NHSBSA). An appliance flagged with a two-or three-month notice of deletion may not always be easy to identify as they are not separately listed in the Preface section by their page number(s) but are annotated with a symbol on their respective page of listing in Part IX.

To assist pharmacy teams and provide full visibility of all appliances due to be deleted in the coming month(s) PSNC will publish the list of appliances that have been deleted from the current months DT and compile lists of the appliances flagged with a notice of deletion of up to three months.

Pharmacy teams are advised to keep track of appliances which are due to be deleted from the DT to manage stock ordering and to run down any excess stock ahead of the planned month of deletion. Only those appliances listed in Part IX of the DT can be dispensed against NHS prescriptions. If you dispense an appliance not listed in the DT, the item(s) would be returned as disallowed and payment will not be made for dispensing the appliance.

The following appliances have been deleted from Part IX of the October 2020 Drug Tariff:
