Don’t forget that from April 2021, the Drug Tariff will only be available in its online form. The old paper copies will finally be phased out after being published in the familiar paper format for decades.
For me this is quite a poignant moment, I have worked with the paper copy of the Drug Tariff for twenty-five years, and it is such a handy book to have lying around in the pharmacy or dispensary. For many older pharmacists, dispensary managers and dispensers it has been a vital part of their working lives for so long.
But times change and now it is time to embrace the online version of the Drug Tariff which can be found here.
The format of the online version is the same as the paper version and some functions are more easily performed using the online version search facility.
Nick Walton of NHS Business Services Authority wants to know how and why dispensing doctors in England and Wales use the drug tariff. Please contact him to find out more.
