Overprint Specification for FP10SS Forms

Overprint Specification for FP10SS Forms

The National Health Service (General Medical Services Contracts) Regulations state that ‘prescription forms’ and ‘repeatable prescriptions’ must be in the format required by the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).

These overprinting requirements specify the format required by the NHSBSA for all prescriber types printing FP10SS prescription forms.

The scope of the specification includes:

  • GP practices ‘parented’ by a Clinical Commissioning Group
  • Repeat Dispensing – a repeatable prescription form authorises a number of batch issue prescription forms which are to be produced at the same time.
  • Prescription forms dispensed by a Community Pharmacy, by an Internet Pharmacy, by an Appliance Contractor or by a Dispensing Doctor.
