Specials: The prescriber has ordered a liquid preparation as “oral suspension”. Part 7S lists the “oral solution” only. Will I be able to obtain a non-tariff version?

Under most circumstances, the answer is no. Part 7S contains products that are more likely to occur, based on the physical properties of the active ingredient and significant excipients. It would be worth checking with the patient and if necessary the prescriber to confirm the acceptability of the Part 7S product. Otherwise authorisation from the Health Board will be necessary.
