Drug Tariff

Dispensing contractors in England should note that from April 2021 the Drug Tariff will no longer be printed and distributed as a paper document. Please find out more on the NHSBSA website.


In line with NHS England’s sustainable development strategy and commitment to make services available online where possible, we are encouraging pharmacies to make use of the online
version of the Drug Tariff.

The online Drug Tariff is available to view on the NHS Business Services Authority website:https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/pharmacies-gp-practices-and-appliance-contractors/drug-tariff, providing timely access to the very latest information. The latest version is available three working days prior to the start of each month. You can also view any updates that have been made to the published version online.

All pharmacies were given the option to opt in to continue to receive the hard copy drug tariff in December 2018. Any pharmacies that did not inform PCSE of their wish to opt in will not receive a monthly hard copy.

Pharmacies can opt in or out of receiving the monthly hard copy of the drug tariff at any time. Please email dtbsurvey@nhs.net with the following information:

- Your name
- Your business name and address
- ODS/Practice code
(if you do not know this please contact the Exeter Helpdesk on 0300 3034 034
or E-mail: exeter.helpdesk@nhs.net)

Please state whether you are opting in or out.

If you are opting in please include information on any days you are not open and alternative delivery instructions for those days.

To receive a hard copy of the drug tariff next month, please inform us that you wish to opt in by 15th day of this month.
