NCSO/price concession February 2013 (updated 27th)

The Department of Health has granted NCSO for the following products:

Isosorbide mononitrate 20mg tablets (new)
Isosorbide mononitrate 40mg tablets (new)
Nifedipine 5mg capsules (new)
Nifedipine 10mg capsules (new)
Sertraline 100mg tablets (new)

Indapamide 2.5mg tablets
Isosorbide mononitrate 10mg tablets
Trazodone 50mg capsules
Trazodone 100mg capsules
Trazodone 150mg tablets

It is essential that contractors endorse the prescription fully with the letters ‘NCSO' and full details of the product dispensed (e.g. manufacturer or supplier or brand name and pack size. If a particular supplier's product is not listed with a price on the NHS RxS pricing system, pharmacies must also endorse the price paid (before discount and ex VAT)). The endorsement must also be signed or initialled and dated. If any of this information is missing, payment will be based on the Drug Tariff price rather than the endorsed product.

In addition, price concessions have been granted on the following products: 

Temazepam 10mg tablets (28): £24.00
Temazepam 20mg tablets (28): £25.00

(With price concessions, no extra endorsements are required by pharmacy contractors to claim these concessions. This price is automatically applied for reimbursement against generic prescriptions).
