To aid pharmacy teams, PSNC has developed the following resources to serve as quick reference guides for pharmacy teams dispensing prescriptions for CDs.

The Dispensing prescriptions for Controlled Drugs factsheet outlines prescription requirements for CDs including prescription validity, length of treatment, owings, repeat dispensing, instalment dispensing and checks to confirm the identify of CD collectors.

The factsheet on Endorsing instalment forms correctly guides pharmacy teams on how to endorse FP10MDA instalment prescription forms to ensure they can be processed for payments accurately by the NHSBSA.
