Document Information on Part XVIIIA of the Drug Tariff

Part XVIIIA of the Drug Tariff contains a list of drugs that cannot be prescribed by name. As the list is made up of specific products and not generic drugs, only those items specified would be disallowed if prescribed.

The decision to add a product to Part XVIIIA is made by the Department of Health and Social Care and published in Schedule 1 of the National Health Service (General Medical Services Contracts)(Prescription of Drugs etc.) Regulations 2004. This is reproduced in Part XVIIIA of the Drug Tariff. Items on the list are also referred to as Schedule 1 drugs.
