Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations.)

These Regulations further amend the General Medical Services Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1997 (“the principal Regulations”) which regulate the terms on which doctors provide general medical services under the Health and Personal Social Services (Northern Ireland) Order 1972.

Regulation 2(a) removes two products from, and regulation 2(b) adds five products to, Schedule 10 of the principal Regulations. The effect of a product being listed in Schedule 10 is that it may not be prescribed for supply under pharmaceutical services, the effect therefore of a product being removed from Schedule 10 is that it may be so prescribed.
