Hi Amanda,

Hope you are OK?

Can you confirm.  When counting the script do we have to keep the “PA” scripts at the front on each Dr for sending off to the pricing authorities?

Hi there,

Lovely to hear from you. 😊

The PA items just need to be counted in- doesn’t matter if they are at the top or bottom.

Hope that makes sense?

Hi Amanda,

Hope you’re well?

Our nurse has started prescribing Tirzepatide/Mounjato injections – they are £92.00 on AAH ☹

Do you know much about? If there is a deal or where is best to order them from?


So… no deal on Mounjato however it is classed as PA so you will receive a PA payment. If the patient takes it away themselves (dispensed) then you will be able to claim the VAT back as a dispensed item.

HI Amanda,

I wonder if you would be able to clarify something for me. What is our best margin on Nitrofurantion 50mg – is it tablets or capsules?

Hi there

Please see below:

50mg capsules – Drug Tariff  £2.72

50mg tablets -Drug Tariff  £11.74

You do need to shop around on this one as purchase prices are varying massively.

I have found the 50mg capsules at £1.56 through OTC and the 50mg tablets at £10.14 through Bestway – so currently best margin is on capsules.

The problem with all of this is that tariff prices change (Category M quarterly) and generic purchase prices can change daily.

But at the moment – 50mg capsules has the best margin.
