To allow time for system suppliers to update their system the Department of Health and Social Care has granted a concession for the month of May. During this time, prescriptions written with the old description will continue to be reimbursed. This has been put into place in order to avoid prescriptions being returned to the pharmacy for clarification which could lead to a delay in payment. 

However, from 1 June contractors need to ensure that any prescriptions written generically for Midazolam match the new listing as shown in the above table.
