Part 7S of the Scottish Drug Tariff was introduced in February 2013. It lists a number of unlicensed medicines commonly prescribed in Scotland. Each product has a volume and a reimbursement price associated with it.

By default, Contractors are paid according to “the pack and a half rule” which simply means that payment is rounded to the nearest whole pack. So when dispensing 140ml of a product with a listed volume of 100ml, Contractors should endorse 140ml/200ml, 2 x 100ml, 2 O.P. etc. to make clear that they have had to use two packs to fulfill the prescription. At IPS Pharma, we supply in multiples of the listed Drug Tariff pack size that makes it easier to endorse correctly.
