Provisional pharmaceutical list

This section has no associated Executive Note

8.—(1) The Board may also in accordance with this regulation prepare a list, to be called “the provisional pharmaceutical list” in which there shall be included, subject to the provisions of regulation 26 (practitioners subject to inquiry) of the National Health Service (Tribunal) (Scotland) Regulations 2004, the name of any person, other than a doctor or dentist, who undertakes provisionally to provide pharmaceutical services. The provisional pharmaceutical list shall state the particulars required under regulation 5(1) in relation to any such person and also the date (“the provisional date”) from which such person undertakes to provide pharmaceutical services at the premises specified in an application under regulation 5(2).

(2) Where in any application under paragraph (2) of regulation 5 to which paragraph (4) or (10) of that regulation applies–

(a)any one or more of the statements in paragraph (2)(b) of Form A or, as the case may be, Form A(MR), is negative; and

(b)the Board is satisfied on the basis of such information as may be submitted with the application that the applicant intends to commence business at the premises specified in the application in the event of the applicant’s name being included in the pharmaceutical list,

the Board, in the case of an application to which paragraph (10) of regulation 5 applies, shall notify and otherwise deal with the application in accordance with that paragraph and Schedule 3 or, in the case of an application to which paragraph (4) of that regulation applies, shall deal with it in accordance with that paragraph and in either case where the Board grants the application the Board may include the name of the applicant in the provisional pharmaceutical list for its area.

(3) Where an application is determined by the inclusion of the name of the applicant in the provisional pharmaceutical list, the Board shall give notification of the decision to the applicant in Form D set out in Schedule 2, and in this regulation any reference to “the date of inclusion” is to the date of inclusion in the provisional pharmaceutical list as stated in Form D.

(4) Subject to paragraph (5) the applicant shall, as soon as reasonably practicable after the date of inclusion and in any event not later than either–

(a)the date six months after the date of inclusion, or

(b)if earlier, the provisional date,

submit Form B set out in Schedule 2 with any information required but not given in paragraph 2(b) of Form A or, as the case may be, Form A(MR), and on receipt of such information the Board shall include the name of the applicant in the pharmaceutical list and remove it from the provisional pharmaceutical list.

(5) Where a person whose name has been included in the provisional pharmaceutical list applies in writing to the Board not later than twenty eight days before the date by which, in terms of paragraph (4) above, the applicant is required to submit Form B, that the applicant wishes the Board to extend the period for submission of that Form and the Board is satisfied that, due to circumstances outwith that person’s control and which could not reasonably have been anticipated at the date of the application, there is no reasonable prospect of such person being able to submit that Form by that date, the Board may extend the period for submission of Form B by a further period not exceeding nine months.

(6) Where an applicant, whose name is included in the provisional pharmaceutical list, has not submitted Form B in accordance with paragraphs (4) or (5), the applicant’s name shall be removed from the provisional pharmaceutical list.
