2.2.3 Extemporaneous Preparation

Extemporaneous Dispensing

Where the CP extemporaneously prepares a product for dispensing they need to ensure that they supply details of the ingredients used to ensure that PSD can reimburse the CP for what has been dispensed. This applies to any preparation of a product prepared in the pharmacy, except reconstitution.

In the electronic message the CP should select the extemporaneous endorsement and then detail the formula including the ingredients and quantities used, if it is not obvious from the description on the prescription. The PMR system will format the claim.

On the paper form the CP must endorse the code EXT and then detail the formula, including the ingredients and quantities used, if it is not obvious from the description on the prescription.
