Specials: How do I endorse a prescription for a non-listed Part 7S unlicensed or imported medicine?

If the item is authorised, the prescription is endorsed ‘SP’ with the actual price paid i.e. NHS net cost price, excluding VAT, of the product. This should be endorsed in pence. You should also endorse the £30 fixed handling fee using the ‘HC’ endorsement in pence (HC 3000).

Any other out of pocket expenses (including wholesaler handling charges) are justified using the existing endorsement code of ‘XP’ (postage and packing) and should also be in pence.

These endorsements should be applied both to the paper form and to the electronic claim using the PMR system.
