This workshop takes delegates through the eight stages of processing applications for inclusion in a pharmaceutical list, and reflects NHS England’s procedures. The day is a mix of theory and practical application, and real applications will be used.

The workshop is aimed at staff involved in processing applications.

A good understanding of the regulatory requirements reduces the risk of a successful appeal to the NHS Litigation Authority’s Family Health Services Appeal Unit. It will never be possible to completely eliminate the risk of an appeal as there may always be an interested party who feels aggrieved by the decision, but the risk of successful appeals is reduced by ensuring that due process is followed. After attending this workshop delegates will:

  • Have a good understanding of Parts 2 to 5 of Schedule 2 of the regulations
  • Be aware of the key stages in processing applications
  • Be able to identify whether an application is valid and the process to be followed if there are missing information, documentation or undertakings
  • Know at which stages decisions are to be made and be able to advise on the options available
  • Be able to ensure that all interested parties are notified of the application
  • Be able to advise on who should be given third-party rights of appeal against decisions made on applications
  • Be able to correctly include successful applicants in the relevant pharmaceutical list

Delegates are asked to bring a copy of the NHS (Pharmaceutical and Local Pharmaceutical Services) Regulations 2013 with them and the related amendment regulations.
