Document Information on Welsh instalment prescribing and dispensing

In Wales form WP10 MDA is used for instalment prescribing of Schedule 2, 3, 4 and 5 Controlled Drugs. However, if a WP10 MDA prescription is presented for dispensing in England, the English rules will apply and you will only be reimbursed for dispensing in instalments:
  • Schedule 2 Controlled Drugs
  • Buprenorphine (Schedule 3)
  • Buprenorphine / Naloxone (Schedule 3)
  • Diazepam (Schedule 4)
  • Diluents
  • Water for Injection.
As in England, the period of treatment must not exceed 14 days.
