Changes to the inclusion criteria for red separators

  • From this October 2021, Bulk prescriptions and HM Prison (HMP) Service-issued paper prescriptions are to be placed into red-separators.
  • Bulk and HMP forms are exempt from prescription charges and should be included in the red separator for exempt prescriptions for end of month submission.
  • On the reverse of the paper prescriptions for HMP forms and bulk there is NO exemption category hence why they should be placed in the red separator, so it will have additional checks by NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA).
