Understanding the rules around dispensing

Do you understand the rules around dispensing? If not this masterclass will help you understand the criteria practices must meet in order to dispense and the eligibility rules for patients.

It will help practices ensure they are complying with the requirements of the regulations and reduce the risk of having dispensing patients switched to prescribing only status. NHS Commissioning Board area teams are expected to continue the work already started by PCTs to police the rules.


The event co-hosted by PCC and the Dispensing Doctors’ Association is on 6 March in Taunton, 13 March in Grantham and 21 March in Newmarket.
