November Adjusted Prices – Thank you for your support

Friday, November 30, 2018


There has been a significant number of changes to the Adjusted Prices over the course of November and we would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your support sending through your shortages and price reports. The more evidence we have to support an application to have a price adjusted, the stronger the case for action.

End of month is now fast approaching, and in light of the many changes this month, we would like to remind Pharmacy teams to confirm all relevant November prescriptions are submitted on your next courier pick up (4th December) to ensure appropriate reimbursement.

We are aware of continuing issues on items not available at tariff price and we encourage you to report such lines via the Shortage Reporter. This allows us to monitor and report on these prices to support you and to ensure adjusted prices can be agreed where possible. You can also sign up to our Shortage Notifications for updates on adjusted prices to your preferred email, and a full list of amendments can be viewed on our Adjusted Prices page.

We will be publishing Part 7 Drug Tariff changes for the 1st December in due course.

For any questions, please get in touch with the Pharmacy Services team on 0131 466 3540 or email us at pharmacy.services@cps.scot.
