Guidance on CD Instalment Prescriptions – the “appropriate” date

Turning Point has informed us that they are receiving a number of queries about what is defined as the "appropriate date" on CD instalment prescriptions such as those for methadone and buprenorphine. These prescriptions are valid for 28 days after the "appropriate" date which is either the date on which it was signed by the prescriber, OR, the date indicated by the prescriber as being the date before which it shall not be supplied - whichever is the later of the two dates.

Turning Point have produced some helpful guidance that can be found below.
