IMPORTANT Drug Tariff Price Changes January 2020

BY GREG BULL  |  POSTED IN GENERAL NEWS

Please note that the Drug Tariff reimbursement price of Flucolxacillin Oral Solution 250mg/5ml, 100ml bottle size has dropped dramatically from £35.26 to £8.07.

This is due to the medicine moving from Category A [December 2019] to Category M [January 2020].

Interestingly this change was NOT indicated in December 2019's Drug Tariff Advance Notice - ensure you purchasing at BELOW the new Drug Tariff price, or prescribing accordingly.

FLUCLOXACILLIN oral solution [100ml] 250mg/5ml 100ml 1 £35.26 £8.07 -£27.19 -77%
