Specification of Requirements for Dispensing and Supply of Stoma Appliances to Patients in the Community for NHS Scotland

Last Updated on 13/05/2020 by steveperry

This document sets out the service standards to be met by all Dispensing Appliance Suppliers and Community Pharmacy Contractors for the purposes of being placed on a list of approved suppliers authorised to dispense and supply Stoma Appliances and associated services to patients in the community. This document also sets out the ongoing standards to be met by Dispensing Appliance Suppliers and Community Pharmacists for the purposes of remaining on that approved supplier list. Failure to continue to meet the standards set out in this service standards document, as assessed on behalf of Scottish Government by National Procurement, a division of the Common Services Agency, a statutory body constituted pursuant to the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978 and having its headquarters at Gyle Square, 1 South Gyle Crescent, Edinburgh, EH12 9EB (“Common Services Agency”) may result in such parties being removed from the list of approved suppliers.
This is a continuation of the arrangements previously sent out in 2016.
