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.
