Dispensing & Prescribing

Where a Primary Care Trust has determined that an area is 'a controlled locality' (that is, 'rural in character') and a practice meets the criteria for the application of 'special rules related to the provision of pharmaceutical services in such areas', doctors can dispense NHS medicines to their own patients who live within the 'controlled locality' and more than 1.6 km from a pharmacy. 

New Pharmaceutical Regulations come into force on 1st September 2012, and replace the 2005 regulations and its many amendments.  The regulations comprise 186 pages and includes ten pages of Amendments, Revocations and Explanatory Notes.
