The Department selects medicines to be included in the quarterly collection of information on special medicinal products based on the level of prescribing. If medical professional bodies have selected special medicinal products that they believe should be included with a reimbursement price in Part VIIIB of the Drug Tariff then the Department will consider including those products in the quarterly collection, but only if those products are prescribed in primary care. If products are not prescribed in primary care then there is no sales, purchase and volume information for special medicinal products supplied to primary care that can be provided by suppliers in the quarterly information collection.
